Berea College provides 100% funding to 100% of enrolled international students for the first year of enrollment. In subsequent years, international students are expected to save US$1,000 per year to contribute towards their expenses. The College provides summer jobs to international students so that they may meet this obligation.
Accepted international students pay a US$50 entrance fee and a US$2,200 deposit to confirm their enrollment. This deposit can be used by international students for certain expenses during their 4 years of enrollment. For students who are unable to pay all or a portion of the deposit, additional financial aid is available.
All international students are provided with a paid, on-campus job through the College’s Work Program throughout the academic year. Students may use their wages (about US$2,000 the first year) to cover personal expenses.
Applicants to Berea College must be students who have strong academic potential and financial need. Most of Berea College students score between 20 and 30 on the ACT (or SAT equivalent) and have a cumulative high school GPA of at least 3.0 in a strong college prep curriculum. Students may take either the ACT or SAT.
Other factors such as community service, leadership qualities, and levels of motivatio will also be taken into consideration. The College strongly recommends the following high school curriculum:
• 4 units of English (including composition, rhetoric, and literature)
• 3 units of Mathematics (at least Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry)
• 2 units of Laboratory Science
• 2 units of Social Science/History (including World History)
• 2 units of a foreign language.
International students have to apply by 30 November for Fall entry.
