Waiting for FAFSA? 

Bethany College is proud to announce a proactive initiative to alleviate financial uncertainty for prospective students who are currently experiencing issues related to the nationwide update of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The delay in FAFSA updates has left many in limbo, unable to determine their eligibility for federal aid. Recognizing the stress this situation brings, Bethany College is taking measures to support these students, ensuring they can confidently plan their academic future without financial worries. Learn more by reaching out to or 304.829.7611. 

The Bethany Affordability Pledge

  1. We will meet 100% of your demonstrated need through a combination of federal, state, and institutional aid.
  2. Unless your need changes, your financial aid is guaranteed for each of your four years of enrollment. We enroll graduates, not first-time students.
  3. Our professionals are available to work with you, to discuss the best strategies to meet your family’s financial circumstances.

“Bethany allows you to start at the campus television station as a freshman. Every other school I looked at made you wait until you were a junior to be able to participate in the campus production.” This hands-on experience at Bethany placed Ashley far ahead of her peers when she graduated. “I just knew I wanted to be in television, and I was able to hold almost every position at the campus TV station. It definitely prepared me and helped me to get into the field.”
