As soon as you’re finished with your junior year of high school, you can apply to Campbell. You can apply online for free.

Dual Enrolled or Early College

The admissions application will ask you to distinguish the type of freshman applicant that you are. If you are planning to dual enroll in college classes during your senior year, or you have in the past, please indicate that you are applying as a Dual Enrolled Student. If you will be graduating from an Early College high school, please indicate that you are applying as an Early College student. Campbell University will not grant college transfer credit based on college courses appearing on high school or early college high school transcripts. In order to have your college credits transferred to Campbell, you must submit official transcripts from the college or university through which the courses were offered.
