    It is no secret that Brenau University is insanely expensive. However, there are several scholarships available for students for a range of reasons such as athletics, academics, or merit. Although the money can be stressful, I never doubt my choice in attending Brenau. It is so easy to find connections in your field and personalized training that is so invaluable. I have grown so much here in ways that I could not have grown at a large university or co-ed school. It really is worth the money.

    It's expensive. There's no other way to say it. But Brenau gives A LOT of scholarships to students so it's not as bad as it seems. You get a fantastic education for what you pay.

    The university gives generous scholarships if you have good grades so the tuition is cut down by that, not to mention random scholarships out there can help out. With that said I would rather pay the money and have teachers who know what they're talking about and an advisor that answers her email and helps me that pay nothing and have incompetent professors and no help from the staff (cough cough Kennesaw State). So worth it.

    Like I said, it is expensive. Schools like GA State are cheaper in the long run.
