One of the most common myths about attending a private college is that it isn’t affordable.
Not true at Bethel College. More than 98 percent of Bethel students receive scholarships or financial aid.
Intended to bring college costs within reach, the Bethel financial aid package is typically a combination of college scholarships, state and federal grants, campus work and student loans. Only loans must be repaid after graduation.
Investing in a Bethel College education can open doors and earn you respect – for the rest of your life.
You’ll find that Bethel’s outstanding quality and reasonable cost add up to a great educational value. For details on the types of academic, fine arts and athletics awards, along with information on federal grants and loans, read about financial aid, scholarships and tuition for future students.
