Founded in 1855, Berea College achieved national distinction as the first coeducational and interracial college in the South. Berea has a longstanding commitment to interracial education and is one of the most racially diverse private liberal arts colleges in the United States. With an emphasis on service to Appalachia and beyond, Berea enrolls 1,600 students from 43 states and U.S. territories and more than 70 countries. Berea College only admits students who are unable to afford tuition and provides all of them a no-tuition promise, valued at more than $178,000 over four years. Berea’s students excel in the College’s supportive yet demanding academic environment, and many are the first in their families to graduate college. As one of nine federally recognized Work Colleges, all Berea students hold a position in which they work 10-12 hours weekly. In 2021, Berea College once again topped the list of “Best Value Colleges” in the nation in The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education (THE) College Rankings. Berea’s no-tuition model contributed to its No. 1 best-value ranking. Forbes cited a 2021 study of nearly 400 colleges in the United States, in which Berea College ranks second in terms of affordability and academic quality. And in 2021 The Princeton Review cited Berea College as “one of the nation’s best institutions for undergraduates to earn their college degree.” The publication also recognized Berea as a Best Value College, based on academic rigor, affordability and graduates’ career outcomes; a Best Green College; and a Tuition-Free School.
