Get to know Erin, our Family Engagement Counselor.

“I grew up in Sutton, West Virginia, and graduated from Berea College. As a Berea graduate, I’m passionate about what a special and unique community this is and all the ways it can impact your student’s life in the same way it changed mine.

As the Family Engagement Counselor, I have the unique experience of working in both Admissions and Financial Aid Services as a resource for your student and especially your family as you work through the application process. I love working with families and enjoy helping with any questions or concerns regarding your application, financial aid, or student life. Your student will have many amazing opportunities here and an outstanding network of support to help them be successful. I invite you to contact me any time, and to visit campus where you can meet me in person.”

There’s no better way to learn about Berea College than to visit our campus and meet our people. We offer campus visits during business hours Monday-Friday while school is in session. Learn more about campus visits!

Admission to Berea College is academically competitive. We have a limited number of spaces in each year’s entering class, so we are looking for students who have strong academic potential and financial need. Find out more about Berea College’s academic requirements.

At Berea, we provide students with a remarkable educational opportunity. Every admitted student receives our Tuition Promise Scholarship, which completely covers the cost of tuition after other forms of grant/scholarship aid are applied. Use our financial calculator to estimate your financial eligibility for Berea College. Learn more about financial aid.

Berea College requires all students to work 10-15 hours per week in approved jobs on campus or in the community while carrying a full academic course load. These work experiences provide tremendous opportunities for students to work in major related areas and to develop soft skills that future employers are looking for. Students and alumni share an overwhelming positive view of the Labor Program. The work experience, they note, “teaches you how to work,” “provides practical experience” and “genuine job perspective.”

Berea College has seven different centers on campus to help students grow and develop during their time here. From career preparation to volunteering to studying abroad, these centers work to provide all of our students a well-rounded college experience. Check out each center below:
