Declare Your Intent to Enroll

If admitted, you will have until May 1, 2016 to declare your intent to enroll. However, as admission to Berea is very competitive and we have a limited number of spaces available, space can only be guaranteed to the first 400 students who submit their Declaration of Intent forms and $50 non-refundable deposits.
