Info for Guidance Counselors

We understand that as a counselor you are faced with a difficult task: preparing your students for the college selection process and helping each student choose the right school. 


Before enrolling at Campbell, a student must first graduate from high school or complete an adult high school equivalency program, such as a GED. As soon as they finish their junior year of high school, students can apply to Campbell. Students can apply online for free. Application materials include official copies of high school transcripts and official college exam test scores. Campbell accepts both SAT and ACT scores. (Note: If your students retake the SAT or ACT and score higher, they should send their highest scores.) Optional materials include personal essays, a photo, and letters of recommendation.


In order to ensure the safety of our prospective students and their families, we have shifted our in-person admissions experiences online.

Encourage your students to schedule a virtual appointment. Our Undergraduate Admissions Counselors are still excited to talk to students and families one-on-one via a Zoom video conference. They will the opportunity to learn more about life at Campbell, get answers to any questions they may have, and we’ll also treat them to a virtual tour of our beautiful main campus.

The community of Campbell, nestled in Buies Creek, North Carolina, will quickly feel like home. We have several options for visits, including Visitation Days and Private Visits. Learn more about campus visits.

Enrollment Deposit

Students must submit a deposit for enrollment. This $250 deposit is important because it lets the University know to hold the student’s space. The enrollment deposit isn’t a fee over and above tuition. The enrollment deposit is credited towards the tuition for the first semester of school. Without paying the enrollment deposit, your students cannot be added to the Housing List. This delay can cause problems if there is a specific housing request or roommate preference. Housing assignments are first-come, first-served, so the earlier the Admissions Office gets the deposit, the more likely these housing requests can be honored. Also, the enrollment deposit allows the University to plan for students’ attendance. It makes sure things are set up for them, such as email access and access to library resources. Visit our Enrollment Deposits page for more details.

Living on Campus

All first-time, full-time students are required to live on campus for the first three years (6 semesters of enrollment) unless one of the following criteria is met:

  1. Student is married
  2. Student is 21 years of age
  3. Student is commuting from the primary residence of a parent or legal guardian within a 50 mile radius of Buies Creek.
