The impact of Blackburn College’s “four-year head start” will carry far into your future. But it starts with the relationships you build in the classroom. Everyone’s working together and invested in the success of the college. That sort of true collaboration shapes the academic culture as well as the campus community.
Blackburn’s tuition is already among the lowest of all private, four-year residential colleges in Illinois. Because each student works ten hours a week for the college for tuition credit, a comprehensive, liberal arts education is within reach for all students, many of whom come from underserved communities.
The transformative Blackburn experience begins the day you enter campus. You’ll become a valued leader in creating the Blackburn culture while developing invaluable professional skills and enjoying a rich and joyful college life.
Our students are valued leaders in the creation of the Blackburn culture who develop invaluable professional skills while enjoying a full, enriching, and joyful college experience.
We’ve integrated our Work Program into every aspect of our academics to flesh out the full Blackburn College experience; the combination of instructional guidance and the honing of practical skills that produce the brightest possible future for each student.
