Tuition and Other Costs
Every Berea student is awarded our Tuition Promise Scholarship. The amount of the scholarship will vary depending on financial need, and the presence of any additional outside scholarships. The important thing is that, together, these resources cover the entire cost of tuition, which totals $24,300 for the 2015-2016 school year. The actual cost to students and their families is $0.
Berea is the only one of America’s top colleges that awards every enrolled student a no-tuition promise. Though admission to Berea is highly competitive, every successful applicant is assured that tuition is completely covered. Part of this financial assistance stems from Berea’s endowment and annual donations from Berea alums.
In many cases, we can even offer additional financial aid to assist with housing, meals, and other fees—not loans—according to each student’s need. Simply put, students at Berea College pay what they can afford.
