  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

3.75 Average Rating
Sterling College is awesome! It's home to the best people in the world and I would do it all over again if I had the chance.
Matt from Orange County, CA
Sterling College is a christ-centered, safe haven in the middle of Kansas. The community and people are what make it so special because of the fellowship they provide. There are so many opportunities to grow your faith in Jesus Christ, but they open their arms welcoming people in, not forcing them to learn.
Kara from Lone Tree, CO
This college has changed my life, not only physically but spiritually. I was welcomed with open arm from the students and also the staff. These people are really loving and take the time out to sit down with you and guide you through your school year.
Yolanda from Anchorage, AK
Sterling College is an incredible vocational school with a great community. It's a lot of fun and hosts many different events for students. One thing to keep in mind is that it is a Christian school, which means that there are a number of Christian Gen Ed courses, such as Chapel and Old Testament/New Testament.
Stephany from Sterling, KS
Everyone knows everyone and takes care of each other. Such a nice atmosphere to constantly be around. The whole town supports the school and the sport teams.
