What Makes Us Special

About Berea College

Berea, the South's first interracial and coeducational college, focuses on learning, labor, and service. All students must work 10 hours weekly as part of their educational experience and to earn money for books, room and board. Berea charges no tuition, admitting academically promising students, primarily from Appalachia, who have limited economic resources. Graduates from Berea go on to distinguish themselves and the College in many fields, including science, arts, education, government, and social services.

Instead of charging tuition, Berea awards a tuition promise scholarship to EVERY student, which along with other grants students may receive completely covers the cost of tuition, meaning the actual cost to students and their families is $0.
