PRICE VS. COST “Price” and “cost” are not the same.
STERLING COLLEGE IS A PLACE... FOR INVESTORS
We promise you value. Make sure you know the difference between the price and the cost before you make a decision that can impact your future. Although our price tag is higher than that of a state university, every student at Sterling College receives financial assistance through scholarships to make the cost competitive.
“Price” is the total amount charged. “Cost” is the amount paid out-of-pocket. FACT: 100% of full-time, on-campus Sterling College students receive financial assistance through scholarships. Adding grants, loans and work study help reduce the cost further.
