The Uniquely Eureka Advantage

Eureka College: The Hidden Gem

A Bold Commitment To Our Students

“The Uniquely Eureka Advantage” is a program that features bold commitments including graduation in four years, a four-year tuition freeze, an experiential learning award to all new students and opportunities to study abroad and participate in campus activities. Each student has their own uniquely Eureka experience. What will yours be?

All incoming new students who meet the requirements for admission, maintain satisfactory academic progress and meet various additional requirements are eligible to take advantage of all five commitments the program offers.

"We already offer a top-notch education which results in proven success for our students. The Uniquely Eureka Advantage is our way of doubling down on our commitments and further enhancing students’ experience."
Eureka College President Dr. Jamel Wright
Four Years Or Free

Eureka College is committed to helping all incoming first-year students graduate in four years. If students follow all guidelines and requirements and do not graduate in four years for any reason, the fifth year will be tuition-free. This is part of our commitment to making Eureka one of the best colleges for its value in the state of Illinois.

Tuition Freeze

Additionally, tuition will be “frozen” for all four years for incoming freshmen. This commitment applies to students who are in good academic standing and continuously enrolled for four academic years or eight semesters. If you’re interested in private colleges near Peoria, IL, we have a lot to offer that can benefit students financially.

Experiential Learning

The third commitment offers all new students a $2,000 Experiential Learning Grant. The grant may support high-impact practices such as internships, mentorships, research for conferences & presentations, or study-abroad opportunities. Students will be eligible for the grant after completing 45 credits hours at Eureka College.

International Travel

In addition, we are more committed to offering study abroad opportunities to all students who choose to include this experience as part of their learning and service. Similar to the Experiential Learning Grant, students will work closely under the guidance of faculty and staff and must have completed 45 Eureka College credit hours to be eligible.

Campus Opportunities

Finally, we are committed to offering all students opportunities to participate in a college activity including music, theatre, athletics or student organizations. Students may initiate their own activity or organization under Eureka College guidelines. As a small college in central Illinois, we’re able to offer each and every student the chance to become a leader in their field of work or recreation.

"The Uniquely Eureka Advantage is designed to advance the College’s mission and represents the next level in providing excellence in learning, service and leadership. We are confident that this initiative will keep our pricing competitive while enhancing our superior outcomes."
