A college education is an investment, not a purchase. Instead of depreciating over time like a vehicle, an education provides a lifetime of gains through career opportunities, friends, experiences, and expanding perceptions of oneself and the world.
The Office of Financial Aid at Bethany College is committed to helping students achieve their educational goals by providing appropriate financial assistance and resources. We offer opportunities through institutional, State, and Federal programs with more than 98% of our students receiving aid.
