Your Cumberlands degree could cost you NOTHING

University of the Cumberlands removes the financial barriers students face when returning to school. Let your focus be on your family, your career, and your future - not your finances! 

"When I went back to school to finish my undergraduate degree, I was completely clueless on how to handle the financial aid aspect of it, but knew I needed financial aid to afford to get my degree. The Cumberlands financial aid department was amazing and made figuring out aid packages a breeze."
               - Hannah Hamilton '20

What does that mean for you? That you can't afford NOT to go to college. You can earn money at the same time you're earning your degree. Even better, a Cumberlands degree could make you eligible for a promotion or a new job opportunity! 

*Federal and state fund eligibility is based on your FAFSA and KHEAA policy.
