Berry College understands that today’s shifting economic situation is creating anxiety for parents about college expenses.  We are concerned as well and want to assure you that we will work with you and your family to minimize debt and help your student become a part of Berry’s distinctive and life-changing education.

Berry has a strong merit scholarship and need-based financial assistance program.  You will find Berry alumni and friends are committed to assisting new generations of students through our scholarship programs.   After acceptance through our Admission Office, additional scholarship opportunities could be available to your student.

As America’s premier work experience college, Berry guarantees an on-campus job to all students regardless of financial need. Such opportunity is integral to the Berry experience and is an additional source of financial assistance.

As Berry alumnae, I returned to assist the new generations of students in affording a college education.  I’ve spent 25 years in the financial aid profession and am excited to share my expertise with incoming families considering Berry College.

I look forward to working with you and your family!
