About BCU

Briar Cliff University (BCU) is a small school with big opportunities. Its academics emphasize the value of practical experience, and many BCU students choose to participate in internships for credit in the Sioux City area. This educational approach is part of the reason why nearly all of BCU students find employment in their field less than six months after they graduate.

On campus, BCU’s academics offer about 45 majors and pre-professional programs to choose from. The university also boasts a student-to-faculty ratio around 15:1, providing the small class sizes and one-on-one attention that mark an excellent liberal arts college.

What happens outside of the classroom is just as important to college life, so Briar Cliff features about 40 student organizations to engage in. These campus groups are a greatly way to develop your leadership, serve the community, and grow as an individual in your time at BCU.

Because tuition is often the biggest obstacle in the way of achieving higher education, Briar Cliff University provides several financial aid opportunities. For maximum eligibility, make sure to file the FAFSA by March 15. Certain scholarships may also have separate application deadlines.

BCU’s admissions checklist includes your application, official transcripts and test scores, and a campus visit. If you’re interested in financial aid, make sure to sign the Academic Pre-Award, as well.

Student Ratings

Overall Rating

I loved everything about Briar Cliff. The thing that stood out the most was how friendly everyone was on campus. On my visit I got a little lost and the students walked right up to me and showed me where to go. The professors are nice and I love that there isn't a lot of people in every class that way you aren't just a number they actually will know you be name. I can't wait to start school in the fall!
