Central College

Location: Pella, IA
Enrollment: 1500
Phone: 1-877-462-3687

At Central College, you can do it all. Our students want more than lectures, and they dive into challenging opportunities across campus and around the world. Being a spectator here is not an option!

Look — so many possibilities:
  • partner with professors for high-level research 
  • get hands-on experience in the athletic training room  
  • start your own business through the entrepreneurship program 
  • intern in Chicago, Washington, D.C., New York City — or any of Central’s study abroad locations  
  • compete on Division III athletics teams 
  • get involved with more than 100 student organizations, plus 18 music ensembles 
  • study abroad in places like Austria, England, Ghana, Mexico, Spain and Wales — and still graduate in four years or less
No matter what you want to study (and even if you’re not sure yet), Central’s 73 academic programs provide the foundation you need to succeed after college. Our graduates prove it — 93 percent are employed in a career of their choice, enrolled in graduate or professional school or completing service a year after graduation.

And you can afford a Central College education — more than 99 percent of Central students receive financial aid. Plus, Central makes sure you can graduate in four years, which means you’ll pay less tuition and earn a salary sooner.
