Tuition and Financial Aid

Berkeley College has always been committed to providing outstanding value for students and families. A staff of professionals helps students and families to understand the financial options and complete any necessary applications. In addition to government grants and loans, Berkeley College offers a number of direct grants and scholarships to qualified students each year. 

Tuition Payments

Tuition is payable 4 weeks prior to the first day of classes according to the published schedule. For students admitted or readmitted after this due date, tuition is payable at registration.

Tuition may be paid in person, by mail, or online through Student Self-Service. The Student Accounts Department accepts payment by check, MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover, or wire transfer. Billing for tuition and fees is done on a semester basis, although the student may make one payment in full for the entire academic year. Instructions for registration and payment of term bills are sent by mail to all students for their first term. Subsequent term bill information is available to students online through Student Self-Service 10 weeks prior to the start of each term. It is the student’s responsibility to obtain and pay the term bill on time. Students who fail to make arrangements for payment of the term bill on time will lose their ability to maintain their course schedule for the term. In addition, a late registration fee may be charged for re-instatement of a student’s course schedule.

The College reserves the right to make any changes in the schedule of hours or in the courses of study that may be desirable.
