In observance of the Memorial Day holiday, campus offices will be closed on Friday, May 24, and Monday, May 27.

Go all in on your dreams and own tomorrow.

We realize college isn't for everybody, but we're not everybody. Cumberlands is one of the most affordable colleges in Kentucky, offers quality education that matters the most, and always puts our students first. That's our commitment to you. 
Take time to schedule a campus tour, reach out to an admissions counselor, or complete your application if you're set to be a Patriot.

No Hidden Fees. No Fine Print. Just an incredibly affordable college experience. That's our commitment to you.

Choosing the right college is not an easy task. There are many factors to consider, especially when it comes to price. Finding a college that is financially affordable is a top priority. Most colleges are quick to tell you their tuition cost, but that is rarely reflective of the full cost of college. There’s also room and board. Laundry fees. Textbooks. Parking fees. Technology fees. Recreation fees. Need we go on? The good news: that isn’t the case at University of the Cumberlands. Our sticker price is what you pay, period. We believe you and your student should be able to afford an education, learn in a quality academic setting, and have your needs put first, without all the fine print. That’s the Cumberlands Commitment.

Affordable for All

Question is, do we accept transfer credits? And the answer to that is yes. If it doesn't perfectly align with your course of study, don't fret. Those will count as elective credits. So they will count in some way, shape or form.
