Founded in 1984, Beckfield College focuses on business and career education for residents of Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana. Students may elect from bachelor’s and associate’s degree programs, as well as diploma and certificate programs. With a team of faculty and staff with ample experience in their respective fields, the college works to give every student individual attention as well as a college education.

The school has two campuses, the Tri-County Campus, located in Cincinnati, Ohio, and the Florence Campus, located in Florence, Kentucky. Beckfield College-Florence is classified as a small school, with under 2,000 undergraduate students. Students may choose from degree-seeking programs of study including business administration, health information technology, nursing, RN, medical office technology, computer network administration, hospitality management, paralegal studies, practical nursing, criminal justice, medical assisting, and healthcare management.

The college features a class schedule that encourages students to maintain previous career, work, family and personal obligations while completing a degree full-time. With just three classes per week, students are greatly assisted with the challenges of scheduling, completing coursework, and making time for their already existing lifestyles. Additionally, students may elect to enroll in morning, evening, or Saturday classes. This private college, set on more than 6 acres of rolling campus and over 60,000 square feet of classroom building space, provides a comfortable and pleasant environment in which students have room to learn and grown.

Unique Programs

High school seniors looking to get a “Jump Start” on their college education may choose to participate in the Jump Start Program. College level courses are offered tuition free via this program, and students get the opportunity to begin early career exploration. In order to qualify students must have completed their junior year of high school, and are allowed to attend one class per quarter, one evening per week. Credits earned are directly transferable to any accepting college, university or other institute of higher learning.

Students still in, or currently graduating from, high school may also be interested in the High School Scholarship. Incoming high school seniors may qualify for full tuition, renewable scholarships in the areas of criminal justice, paralegal studies, hospitality management, business administration and nursing.


Admissions are non-competitive for most programs. Prospective students should begin by completing the online information form on the Beckfield website. Potential students will then be called in for a complete personal interview, to discuss academic and career goals. After taking a campus and facility tour students will be asked to complete the enrollment and financial aid applications. Admissions are accepted on a rolling basis, so students may apply at any time. After completing the standard application process, students will be notified as soon as possible regarding their acceptance status.

Financial Aid

All students interested in financial aid should make an appointment to meet with an admissions representative. Students must next speak with a financial aid representative, and fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine eligibility. Students may qualify for and be offered various federal, public and private loans, grants, work study programs, and scholarships to help pay for tuition, fees, textbooks, and other education-related expenses.

Applicants from Kentucky may qualify for state grants and scholarships like the Kentucky Cap Grant, and KEES Scholarships, limited to Kentucky high school graduates. Other alternative forms of financial aid include the Workforce Investment Act, Veterans Benefits, and Alternative Loans.
