Paying for college

We'll help you navigate financial aid

We understand that college is a huge financial commitment, and we strive to provide as many resources as we can to help you afford your dream. Approximately 88 percent of Campbell students receive some form of financial aid from a variety of sources.

Available Aid

Merit-based scholarships are one form of aid available at Campbell. The Presidential and Scott-Ellis Scholarships are earned by students who demonstrate outstanding academic ability. These scholarships vary in value to a maximum of $15,000 per year and are based on GPA and SAT or ACT scores.

In addition, the Campbell Grant is available to students whose academic records fall slightly outside the parameters of the Presidential and Scott-Ellis scholarships. Campbell Grants are $5,000 per year.

Merit-based scholarships are automatically determined by the Admissions Office when you apply. To be considered for financial aid, you must be enrolled full time in a degree program and be a US citizen or permanent resident. To continue receiving aid, you must make satisfactory academic progress.

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

Endowed Scholarships

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, over $54 million has been contributed to Campbell’s private scholarship endowment fund to help students receive a quality education. Each year, more than 1,600 receive endowed scholarships.

Endowed Scholarships are available for the College of Arts and Sciences, the Religion and Philosophy Departments, School of Business, School of Education, Divinity School, School of Law, and College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. For more information about endowed scholarships, including qualifications, visit the Endowed Scholarship website.

Transfer Scholarships

There is also a merit scholarship available for full-time undergraduate students attending main campus. To earn this scholarship, students must have an overall college GPA between 3.0 and 4.0. The value of this scholarship ranges between $9,000 and $14,000 per year. Transfer scholarships are awarded automatically upon review for acceptance. If awarded a merit scholarship, you will see the amount listed on your acceptance letter as either Scott-Ellis Transfer Scholarship or Presidential Scholarship. The amount and classification of the award will be based on GPA and course selection. Students must have completed a minimum of twelve transferable hours to be considered for one of these scholarships.
