Tuition Cost & Financial Aid

The total price includes all costs that you and your family will pay for you to attend college. These include tuition (in- or out-of-state), room and board, which may be replaced by rent if you live off campus, books and fees, and other various expenses such as food that your tuition doesn’t cover. This total comes to $38,116.

Families don’t have to pay 100% of this price. Financial aid helps you and your family to keep your obligation down. As of a recent academic year, the average net price, the amount remaining after financial aid covers its portion, was $16,527. Families at different income levels receive different levels of financial aid, and so end up paying based on their income. For families earning up to $30,001, they pay around $15,787. Families earning between $48,001 and $75,000 pay around $13,819. Families earning more than $110,001 pay around $23,944.

About 403 freshmen students received financial aid in a recent year, about 98%. They received an average of $17,102 and about 97% of students (399) received institutional grants and scholarships of $9,724.

The retention rate for the New York campus is 65%. This term refers to the percentage of freshmen who return to school for their second year of classes. The student population is 3,696.

Because Berkeley College in New York City offers only associate and bachelor’s degrees, this changes graduation rates somewhat. The 4-year graduation rate is 25% and the 6-year graduation rate is a little higher at 33%. These numbers are significantly lower than average. However, that could be due to a high percentage of part-time students and those who finish their degrees elsewhere or may indicate the difficulty of completing a degree online. It does indicate that students will have to be mindful of how long they are taking to complete their degrees.

Luckily, students who have to work can take evening or online classes; meaning there is a great level of flexibility for those who are serious about completing their degree.

The most popular degree programs from most to least for associate degrees are: business, management, marketing and related support services; homeland security, law enforcement, firefighting, and related protective services; health professions and related programs; computer and information sciences and support services; and legal professions and studies.

For bachelor’s degrees, the most popular programs are business, management, marketing and related services; homeland security, law enforcement, firefighting, and related protective services; health professions and related programs; legal professions and studies; and computer information sciences and support services.
