Choosing the right college is not an easy task, but at Cumberlands we try to make it easy for you.

There are many factors to consider for any prospective student, 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. We help high school students create a path toward a degree and a start to their career. We offer student services that span the enrollment process, student experience, and for graduates and alumni searching for professional opportunities. That’s the Cumberlands’ Commitment to prospective and current students.

We want all students to know that with Cumberlands there is a clear and affordable path to a college degree.
