Founded in the late 1700s, Tusculum College has moved into the 21st century by offering some courses online, especially to grad students. Located in rural Tennessee, this institution provides its small (about 1,800) student body with very good bachelor and master degree programs in business and education. Also popular are bachelor programs in nursing (BSN) and psychology.
Nearly 100% are fulltime students, and about 35% are 25 or older. Tusculum College follows the strategy of offering almost all enrollees an institutional grant or scholarship in order to bring down the cost of attending to about $18K per year for undergrads. Costs are also reasonable for graduate students, and as a private school, Tusculum does not charge a premium to students from out of state.
Students comment that the campus is “absolutely gorgeous” and that no matter your age you will enjoy attending, and be rewarded by a Tusculum education. We think these comments are right on the money and recommend a close look at this rural Tennessee college.
