Welcome to Berea's Financial Resource Questionnaire!

(For new domestic freshman only)

Thanks to our unique mission, Berea College offers outstanding educational opportunities for students who demonstrate strong academic potential and significant financial need. For students applying for admission to Berea, the FRQ provides a means of demonstrating your financial eligibility to attend Berea prior to the January 1 availability of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Please keep in mind that the FRQ expires on January 31, so your application must be complete before that date. After January 31, you must submit the FAFSA as a means of demonstrating your financial eligibility. Also, all students who are offered admission to Berea are required to submit a FAFSA as final proof of their financial eligibility.
