Our friendly Admissions Advisors are here to discuss your interests, program options, and to guide you through the admissions process

We’ll Help You Navigate College, So You’ll End up Where You Want to Be

We understand that attending College may be a huge step for you and that all of the admissions information can be a little daunting. That’s why Beal’s Admissions Advisors are here on your behalf, making the process more simple for you. Then you can focus on what matters – seeking career training that will give you a leg up, career-wise and confidence-wise.

What You’ll Need in Order to Apply

When applying to Beal, you must provide a valid high school diploma, GED, or HiSET. You’ll also be required to take the Accuplacer reading comprehension exam (unless you qualify for an exemption). Finally, you need certain vaccines to attend Beal College. The vaccines are to ensure everyone’s safety. Talk to an Admissions Advisor to learn more.

Start the Application Process to Begin Your Career Training

To start, you can fill out an admissions application or Apply Online. Once we receive and review your application, we will reach out to you with instructions on how to proceed. Next, you’ll come in to meet with one of our Admissions Advisors, whose job it is to support you through each step of the admissions process.

When you meet, you’ll have the chance to discuss what your interests and career goals are and they’ll give you program-specific information. You can also take a tour of the campus facilities, meet instructors and watch current students complete their career training.

Pursue Your Career Sooner With Rolling Admission

Beal College has a rolling admissions policy, which means you will be considered for acceptance as soon as you submit your admissions application. You must also take an entrance exam if your program requires it (or qualify for an entrance exam exemption). There is a $30 application fee. However, the fee can be waived in some cases. Talk to your Admissions Advisor to learn more.

Tuition and Fees

Everyone wonders how they are going to afford College, but trust us – it’s worth it. You’ll be thankful you invested your time and money as you develop into a professional – that’s how you move ahead in the world! Plus, no one can take that credential away from you once you’ve earned it. Each Degree, Certificate or Diploma program has differing requirements and slightly differing costs. You can discuss the associated costs with your Admissions Advisor, and they’ll connect you with the Financial Aid Office to see if you’re eligible for FAFSA, scholarships, grants or bursaries.

Funding Your Education

We believe that no student should be denied the opportunity to pursue their educational interests because of a lack of financial resources. An interview with the Financial Aid Office can help to assess your financial needs based on the educational costs involved. Your Financial Aid Advisor will tell you about the various educational grants, loans, and scholarships that are available to you.

Enrollment Agreement with Binding Arbitration Provision. As a condition of enrollment, Beal College (the “College”) requires each student to sign an enrollment agreement containing a binding arbitration provision. The full arbitration provision can be found here and on page 13 of the College Catalog and School Handbook. Under the arbitration provision, each student and the College agree to resolve through binding and mandatory arbitration any dispute between the student and the College or any current or former employee(s) of the College. Arbitration is the referral of a dispute to an impartial person (an arbitrator) for a final and binding determination of the dispute. In agreeing to binding and mandatory arbitration, the parties voluntarily give up certain rights, including the right to pursue a dispute in court, the right to a trial by a judge or jury, rights to appeal, and other rights that may be available in a court, such as broader discovery rights. As provided by the arbitration provision, the parties also give up the right to bring or participate in any class action, collective action, private attorney general action, or any other type of action or proceeding in which anyone acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity on behalf of others. If you have any questions about this arbitration provision or the arbitration process, please contact the Chief Operations Officer. The College cannot require the student to participate in arbitration or any internal dispute resolution process offered by the College prior to filing a borrower defense to repayment application with the U.S. Department of Education pursuant to 34 C.F.R. § 685.206(e); the College cannot, in any way, require the student to limit, relinquish, or waive his or her ability to pursue filing a borrower defense claim, pursuant to § 685.206(e) at any time; and any arbitration required by this pre-dispute arbitration agreement tolls the limitations period for filing a borrower defense to repayment application pursuant to § 685.206(e)(6)(ii).
