Beacon Offers Affordable Access

Beacon College’s current annual tuition of $36,172 is competitively priced with other private colleges and universities nationwide. Its total cost of attendance is considerably below that of other private-and many public- colleges and universities that serve students who learn differently.

Generous scholarships and financial aid are available. Additionally, because we are dedicated to exclusively serving students with diagnosed learning disabilities, the cost of attending Beacon (including tuition, books, and fees) offer many families valuable medical tax deduction benefits. Details can be found in IRS publications 907 and 502. The unique nature of Beacon’s program also qualifies many students to receive state vocational rehabilitation funding.
