    Financial Aid 

    Berry College offers a competitive merit-based scholarship program for international students. These scholarships are based on a student’s secondary school transcripts as well as scores on the SAT or ACT and are awarded automatically to students that qualify. While these scholarships can be generous, it is important to remember that there are no need-based scholarships that are available to international students. International applicants must show that they can provide for themselves financially while attending Berry. This information should be indicated on the applicant’s Certification of Finances.
