Financial Aid

Apply For Financial Aid

The first step to receiving financial aid is submitting your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is the only application Campbell University accepts to begin the financial aid process.

About Financial Aid & Scholarships

For six consecutive years, Institutional Research & Evaluation, Inc. in its annual publication America’s 100 Best College Buys has recognized Campbell University as one of the nation’s best educational values. When comparing Campbell’s tuition, fees, and living expenses, it is apparent that our affordability and value separate us from the others. Campbell’s tuition is consistently one of the lowest among the private universities in North Carolina and the Southeast.

Our Office of Financial Aid is committed to helping students meet their educational goals and objectives. That’s why we offer extensive financial aid resources. Nearly 90 percent of Campbell students receive some form of financial aid from a wide range of sources, including:

  • merit-based scholarships
  • grants
  • need-based aid
  • loans
  • opportunities for student employment
  • deferred payment plan

Campbell has a long-standing tradition of awarding academic excellence through our Presidential and Scott-Ellis Scholarship programs. Students who demonstrate outstanding academic ability are rewarded for their hard work. These scholarships are based on high school GPA and SAT or ACT scores. These scholarships range as follows:

  • Presidential Scholarship -- $15,000 to $17,000 annually (up to $68,000 over four undergraduate years) for top students.
  • Scott-Ellis Scholarship -- $8,000 to $14,000 annually (up to $42,000 over four undergraduate years).

Merit-based scholarships are automatically determined by the Admissions Office when you apply for admission at Campbell University.

A Campbell Grant is available to students whose academic records fall slightly outside the parameters of the Presidential or Scott-Ellis Scholarships. Campbell Grants are $6,000 per year.

Note: International students are not eligible for federal or state grants or loans; however, academically gifted international students may qualify for International Merit Scholarships.

To be eligible for financial aid consideration, generally you must be enrolled full time in a degree program and be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. To continue receiving aid, you must make satisfactory academic progress.

Investing in a college education is a major financial decision, and many students and their families need to look beyond their own resources for assistance. Let us help you!
