World-Class Education, Convenient Offerings, & Competitive Pricing

Your education is a serious financial investment. At Bluefield College, we feel that students in Virginia and beyond deserve affordable college tuition options to earn an on-campus or online degree. Bluefield’s financial aid counselors are available to discuss affordable cost options with you regarding the financing of your Christ-centered education.

Along with the fees listed, students are encouraged to use their financial aid award letter to determine final out-of-pocket expenses. You may bridge the difference with other payment options, including Federal Parent PLUS Loans, tuition assistance and scholarships from outside institutions, as well as Bluefield College’s own tuition payment plan.

Bluefield College provides textbooks for all degree-seeking students through a course material rental program with eCampus.

Each student is charged per semester and will typically receive all their course materials by the first day of class. If a textbook is not returned within five (5) days of the end of a class, an additional charge of 50% of the list price of the textbook will be added to the student’s account.  Students who receive Title IV funds are eligible for a reduction of the fee.  If a student applies for this reduction, or “Opt-out”, they will be responsible for acquiring their own textbooks and any digital materials.  Bluefield College strongly urges all eligible students to fully participate in this program.  For further information, contact BC Central.
