Fall of 2021: We’ve cut tuition in half!

We are taking the next step in our commitment to affordability, and after seven consecutive years of discounting our undergraduate tuition by half or more for every accepted student, we are making that low net cost permanent! Beginning in the Fall semester of 2021, Goldey-Beacom undergraduate tuition is cut in half, to $425 per credit hour, or $12,750 for an annual full time load of 30 credit hours. Our generous merit scholarship offerings will remain available to qualified students to reduce this cost even further, and federal and state financial aid in the form of grants and loans can complete the student aid package for eligible students. At $12,750 per year, you will be hard-pressed to find a more affordable option among four-year colleges in the region!

  • “Goldey-Beacom is nice because of its smaller size. Since it is a smaller community, it was very easy to make friends. The dorms are nice too, it isn’t your traditional small dorm, it is more like an apartment and has a full kitchen."
