About Blackburn College

Going to college, especially a private college, can really break the bank. Blackburn College recognizes the financial struggles that accompany postsecondary education, and proudly touts one of the lowest tuition costs of any private college in Illinois.

Blackburn also offers a work-study program to help students pay for school. Unlike other work-study programs, however, Blackburn’s is student-managed, and is required of all students. In the work program, you’ll be a fundamental part of the school’s functionality and well-being, while also lessening the burden of tuition costs.

Eligible students can also apply for merit-based financial aid, which can cover some or all of your tuition if you qualify. The award amount is primarily based on GPA and standardized test scores.

In terms of academics, Blackburn boasts small class sizes and a teaching staff comprised exclusively of professors. Whether you’re taking a freshman writing class or a 400-level major-specific course, you’ll be taught by a professor, not a graduate student.

Blackburn also has a small but distinguished athletic program, with NCAA Division III teams in basketball, golf, cross country and more. The Dawes Physical Education Center is fully stocked with equipment for training and rehabilitation, with the goal of offering top-notch athletic resources and care for Blackburn students.
