Scholarships and Aid

At Berry College, our faculty and staff will be invested in your experience from your very first day because we know that you have invested in Berry. Founded as a school to provide a quality education to students regardless of financial circumstances, we continue Martha Berry’s legacy by working with students from all backgrounds. We will partner with you to make sure you are aware of all of the scholarship opportunities available to you.

So what do we want from you? Be ENGAGED. The application for admission is available now for seniors and transfer students, and our financial aid and scholarship process depends on your completed application. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is available on October 1. Send your application and your FAFSA to us early so that we have time to work with you in making a sound financial plan for your college education. Thanks to the strong support of alumni and friends, Berry is fortunate to offer a wide variety of academic scholarships and need-based grants to supplement any state or federal aid you may receive. We also work with families to identify other options to spread out paying for college, including student loans.

As a Berry student, you will be eligible for participation in the nation’s premier Work Experience Program each semester you are enrolled. This program will provide you with the opportunity to gain relevant, real-world experience in more than 300 different types of on-campus jobs while also earning a paycheck! We believe that the opportunities you have through student work will help you Be NOTICED when you search for jobs after college. 

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again - we want you to Be KNOWN. The financial aid process can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. If you're feeling hesitant, please call or email us so we can help. Or come visit, and we’ll talk through your options with you.
