Tuition, Room & Board

We make every effort to support students who make the choice to attend Sterling College. All students determined to have financial need receive financial assistance. In 2012, the average financial aid award, per semester, was $10,500.

All Sterling students who live on campus earn $800 per semester in tuition credit for their participation in the Work Program.  Students on internship are eligible to earn up to $600.

Sterling is a year-round college; we admit students in all three semesters, fall, spring and summer. There is no requirement to engage in the year-round curriculum, and many students do stay with the traditional fall and spring schedule.  Federal and Sterling College student financial aid programs are available year-round.
