Financial Information



Financial Assistance

The primary purpose of the financial assistance program at Campbell is to provide assistance for those students who could not otherwise acquire a college education. Campbell provides an extensive financial assistance program for eligible students in the form of scholarships, grants-in-aid, loans, and part-time employment.

In 2015-2016, Campbell awarded some type of financial assistance to approximately 80% of its students.

Further information about financial assistance, including application forms, may be by calling the toll-free number 1-800-334-4111 or emailing financialaid@campbell.edu. Additional information may be obtained by visiting Campbell University’s home page at http://www.campbell.edu.

Campbell requires The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and does not accept any other financial aid application.

Need is calculated from income and asset information provided by student and parents on the FAFSA, as well as family size and number of family members in college. This confidential information is used to determine the amount of assistance offered to our students.

To be considered for financial assistance or scholarships, the student must

  • Apply for admission to Campbell University. The Campbell University application begins the admissions process. Acceptance to Campbell University begins the financial aid process.
  • File a Free Application for Federal Student Aid and request the results be sent to Campbell University, P.O. Box 36, Buies Creek, N.C. 27506. (Campbell University’s Title IV School Code is 002913.)
  • Be accepted for admission to Campbell University as a regular degree-seeking student and/or be making satisfactory academic progress.
  • A new Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be completed each academic year. This should be done as soon as possible after October 1 each year.

Campbell University Financial Aid Office Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy (SAP) January/Spring 2016

The Higher Education Act mandates institutions of higher education to establish minimum standards of “Satisfactory Academic Progress.” Campbell University makes these standards applicable to all programs funded by the federal and state government, including Federal Pell Grants, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants, Federal Perkins Loans, Federal Work-Study, Federal Direct Loans, and Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loans. These standards are also applicable to all North Carolina programs and certain university controlled scholarships based in part upon academic ability. Campbell University Academic and Endowed scholarships have academic requirements that are higher than those in this policy. Students are informed of these standards when they receive their Financial Aid Award Letter. Student-Athletes must satisfy the eligibility requirements established by Campbell University and by the NCAA to be eligible for athletically related financial aid. Programs administered by agencies other than Campbell University, such as private scholarships, or grants given by states other than North Carolina, may have their own academic standards for students. Students will need to contact such agencies to determine eligibility requirements. Transfer students and returning students to Campbell University following a period of absence or cancellation must meet Campbell’s SAP policy in order to regain or have eligibility for financial aid. Campbell University reserves the right to modify this policy at any time.

Federal Regulations require the university to establish SAP standards in the following areas: (1) Cumulative GPA; (2) Cumulative Hours Attempted; and (3) Maximum Time Frame. In addition, a school’s SAP policy must include the student’s total academic history. SAP will be determined at the end of each term, including summer terms.

Satisfactory Academic Progress for Undergraduate Students

Graduate program SAP is available at https://www.campbell.edu/student-services/financial-aid/

  1. Cumulative GPA
    The cumulative number of credits attempted in the undergraduate schools of the university includes those credits attempted as of the last day to drop a course. Multiple attempts of the same course will be counted for each attempt.
    Credits Attempted Minimum Cumulative GPA
    1 - 23 1.4
    24 - 39 1.6
    40 - 63 1.8
    64 or more 2.0
  2. Cumulative Attempted Hours
    A student must pass (earn) at least 67% of their graded hours (excluding non-credit courses and pass/fail courses) in order to maintain satisfactory progress for Federal financial aid. To earn graded hours at Campbell University, a student must receive a grade of A, B, C, or D. A grade of F or W is not considered completed hours. Non-Passing Grades: Unsuccessful grades of F, FX, I, IC, NC, WF, or WP will be used in determining complettion rate and timeframe.

    When a student repeats a course, the total attempted hours will increase with each repeat, but the student will only earn hours for a completed course once. Therefore, repeating classes will negatively impact a student’s ability to satisfy the 67% passage rate, but may significantly increase a student’s cumulative GPA. Students will only be paid financial aid for one repeated course attempt per course.

  3. Maximum Time Frame
    Undergraduate students must complete their degree requirements within 150% of the published length of their academic program.
    Included in attempted hours are all coursework attempted, including transfer credits, which consists of passed, repeated, incomplete, failed, and withdrew failing courses. Attempted hours do not include credits earned through Advanced Placement (AP), College Level Examination Program (CLEP), or other similar testing programs, or through military credits.

Consequences

Students who fail to meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress standards will be placed on Financial Aid Warning for one semester. During the Warning period, a student will be eligible to receive financial aid. At the end of the Warning semester, students who still do not meet the SAP standards will be placed on Financial Aid Cancellation. Students who are placed on Cancellation will not be eligible for financial aid. This policy also includes anyone using Veterans benefits.

Financial Aid Appeal Policy

Students on Cancellation may appeal their status if extenuating circumstances beyond the student’s control contributed to their academic performance. Examples of extenuating circumstances are illness, death of an immediate family member, or a natural disaster. Students may appeal SAP one time during their academic career at Campbell University by writing an appeal letter to the Financial Aid Appeal Committee. The letter should include the circumstances of the extenuating circumstances, how the circumstances have been resolved, and how the student is positioned to now be successful. Appeal letters without these items included will automatically be denied. The Financial Aid Appeal Committee will review appeals at the end of each semester once grades have been posted. Appeals must be submitted within 30 days of the first day of class. Students will be notified in writing of the Financial Aid Appeal Committee decision.

Students with an approved appeal will be placed on one semester of Probation. To be placed on Probation, the appeal committee must determine it is possible for a student to achieve SAP at the end of the next term or put the student on an Academic Plan.

Federal Grants and Loans

Federal Pell Grant Program

As of this writing, students who have a sufficient financial need may be eligible for this grant up to a maximum of $5,920 annually. The Federal Pell Grant processor sends the student a Student Aid Report (SAR), which will state tentatively whether the student is eligible for the Federal Pell Grant.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG)

A limited number of Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants are available to undergraduate students attending Campbell University. Funds for the grants are provided by the federal government. Grants under this program can be awarded to students who: (1) are nationals of the United States; (2) have been accepted for enrollment as half-time or better students; (3) show evidence of making satisfactory academic progress in terms of financial aid; (4) demonstrate an exceptional financial need, with priority awards being made to Federal Pell Grant recipients. Grants under this program may vary from $100 to $4,000 per year depending upon the federal budget allocation received and the number of eligible recipients.

Federal Work-Study Program

The Federal Work-Study Program (FWS) enables those students who are eligible to have an opportunity to work and earn part of the money necessary to meet their educational expenses. It is an “hours worked, hours paid” type of program. The student approved for FWS is compensated on a monthly basis for the hours that he/she worked during the month. The FWS award is not deducted from a student’s educational charges at the beginning of the semester. Students work in almost all areas of the campus - library, food services, physical plant, dormitories, academic departments, administrative offices, athletics, etc. Student workers are encouraged to arrange work schedules to allow adequate time for their studies. A student’s FWS award depends on “need” along with the amount of funds available for FWS.

Federal Perkins Loan Program

The Federal Perkins Loan Program is a program of borrowing based upon need, which enables a student to borrow an annual loan limit of up to $5,000 per academic year with an aggregate maximum of $20,000 for undergraduates. The amount received annually depends on individual need and funds available. These loans are non-interest bearing while a student is enrolled at least half-time or better.

Federal Subsidized and Unsubsidized Direct Stafford Loan Programs

A Federal Subsidized Direct Stafford Loan is a need-based loan guaranteed by the federal government. Students are not charged interest on this type of loan as long as they maintain at least half-time enrollment status, during grace periods, and during deferment periods.

A Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan is a non-need-based loan. Interest on the Unsubsidized Direct Stafford Loan begins to accrue at the time of disbursement. The student is responsible for the interest payment. Students have the option to (1) make payments on the interest while enrolled; or (2) have their interest accrue and be capitalized (added to the principal amount of the loan).

Under these Federal Direct Stafford Loan Programs a student classified as a freshman may borrow a maximum of $5,500; sophomore, $6,500; junior and senior, $7,500, per academic year with a total aggregate loan limit for dependent undergraduate studies of $31,000. (The student may borrow both a Federal Subsidized Stafford Loan and a Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan not to exceed the academic year loan limit) Repayment of these loans begins six months after the student graduates, withdraws from school, or drops below half-time enrollment. Federal Direct Stafford Loans have a fixed interest rate.

Graduate and professional students may borrow $20,500 per year with a total aggregate loan limit of $138,500 for combined undergraduate and graduate studies (exception is Doctor Of Pharmacy Students who may borrow $40,500 per academic year with a total loan limit of $224,000 for combined undergraduate and graduate studies). This amount is the combined maximum amount allowed for Subsidized and Unsubsidized. Subsidized Direct Stafford Loans may not exceed $8,500 per academic year.

NOTE: Current interest rate information can be found on the following website: https://studentaid.ed.gov.

Federal Direct PLUS Loan Program

This is a loan program for parents of undergraduate students as well as students who are in graduate/professional programs. The annual loan limit is the cost of education minus other aid awarded to the student. The interest rate is fixed. Loan origination and federal default fees of up to 4% may be deducted from the loan proceeds by the lender.

Veterans Administration Requirements

In addition to all other institutional policies and regulations, students who receive education benefits from the Veterans Administration must comply with the policies of the Veterans Administration and the North Carolina State Approving Agency for the training and education of students receiving VA education benefits. These policies include the following requirements:

The student must be fully matriculated prior to certification to the Veterans Administration as eligible to receive benefits.

  • Normally, an undergraduate student will receive full-time benefits for 12 semester hours or more of coursework required for his/her degree, three-fourths time benefits for 9-11 semester hours, one-half time benefits for 6-8 semester hours, and reimbursement for tuition and fees for 1-5 semester hours of work. This schedule is applicable only to the standard semester generally used by the main campus. However, for students using the Post 9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33), the housing allowance will be prorated by the student’s rate of pursuit (rounded to the nearest tenth). For example, a student training at a rate of pursuit of 75% would receive 80% of the Housing Allowance.
  • Summer school, evening programs, graduate programs, and undergraduate extended program sites with different academic calendars will be computed on an individual basis.
  • Only courses required to complete the program of education or remaining elective courses in the individual’s curriculum may be counted in qualifying for VA education benefits.
  • Depending on the circumstances, a student may repeat a course and receive VA education benefits for an “F” grade and “D” grade (see VA Official).

It is the individual student’s responsibility to advise the Veterans Affairs Office of the University at the beginning of each semester or term of the courses for which the student has registered. In addition, it is the student’s responsibility to advise the Veterans Affairs Office of any change in the student’s status, such as dropping or adding courses or withdrawal from the school after a semester or term has started. When a student using the Post 9/11 GI Bill drops a class (or stops attending) after the enrollment certification is submitted to VA, the student is responsible for any overpayment owed back to VA.

If a student does not make “Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)” as defined in the University’s Financial Aid or Admissions requirements in this Bulletin, the law requires that VA education benefits be terminated.

Army ROTC Scholarship and Funds

The Army ROTC Scholarship program is designed to offer financial assistance to outstanding young men and women motivated toward being an Army Officer. These Army scholarships pay 100% of required tuition and provide an allowance each year toward books and supplies. In addition it provides a subsistence allowance of $300 - $500 each month school is in session. Four, three and two-year scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis. The four-year scholarship is for incoming freshmen; the application must be submitted on line by visiting: www.goarmy.com/rotc. The deadline for submission is January 10th of your senior year of high school.

Information concerning three and two-year scholarships may be obtained from the Department of Military Science at Campbell University, tel. 1-800-334-4111, ext. 1590 or 5734.

All Advanced Course ROTC students (Juniors and Seniors) without scholarships receive a monthly subsistence allowance of $300 - $500 each month school is in session; students entering the upper level ROTC program must commit to an Army enlistment contract with the goal of serving as an Army Officer in the military.

Campbell University provides each ROTC scholarship recipient an additional scholarship (ROTC Presidential Scholarship) designed to cover the costs of on-campus room and board, however, the student’s complete financial aid package will not exceed total cost of their education. If the student becomes ineligible for any part of their Army ROTC scholarship for a particular period of enrollment, the student will also become ineligible for the ROTC Presidential Scholarship for that same period.

Admission of Veterans, Military, and Other Eligible Persons

This institution is approved under the provisions of Title 38 and Title 10, United States Code for enrollment of veterans, military, and other eligible persons for programs approved by the North Carolina State Approving Agency. All interested personnel should consult with the certifying official at 1-800-334-4111, extension 1311, or look at the VA page on the website at www.campbell.edu. If interested in an extended program site (RTP, Bragg, Lejeune, CU Online, call the VA certifying official at that campus.

Campbell University is a member of Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC) and the SOC Degree Network System (DNS).

The SOC Degree Network System is made up of institutions selected by the military services to deliver specific associate and bachelor’s degree programs to servicemembers and their families. As a member of the DNS, we have agreed to adhere to the following academic policies intended to support military students in their academic endeavors towards degree completion by:

  • Limiting the amount of coursework students must take at a single college to 25% or less of degree requirements. The only exception is for institutions that offer 100% of an undergraduate degree online; they may require servicemembers to take 30% of that degree program from their institution.
  • Designing transfer practices to minimize loss of credit and avoid duplication of coursework.
  • Awarding credit for military training experiences; must also award credit for occupation specialty experiences based on American Council on Education (ACE) recommendations.
  • Awarding credit for nationally recognized tests such as CLEP, ECE, and DSST.
  • Guarantee transfer of courses (with SOC DNS Course Category Codes) from one another within designated curriculum areas such as business, management, computer studies, health-care management, psychology, and other subject areas.
  • Act as “home colleges” and issue SOC DNS Student Agreements that serve as prenegotiated degree plans for enrolled students. When a student transfers to a new duty station, the Student Agreement acts as a contract-for-degree so that courses, tests, and military experiences that are part of the degree plan are transferred back to the home college. When all degree requirements set out in the Student Agreement have been satisfied, the home college awards the associate or bachelor degree.

The University will evaluate military records for college credit, without charge, to determine the amount of credit earned for nontraditional schooling, and military experience and training, if the student applies for admission and is accepted as a degree-seeking student at the University.

Contact Information for Financial Aid from Other States

Contact information for financial aid for states other than North Carolina can be found on the Campbell University Financial Information website at: https://www.campbell.edu/financial-aid/.

Scholarships

Each year, Campbell University provides assistance to many of its students through various scholarships that are financed through institutional funds as well as privately funded sources.

Endowed Scholarships

Campbell University is grateful for the financial assistance made available to students each year through our Endowed Scholarship Program. Through the generosity of the University’s many supporters endowed scholarships are established to help Campbell students receive a Christian education.

The number and amount of endowed scholarships awarded each year is contingent upon the number of returning recipients and the earnings available from the invested principals.

Endowments are coded into two categories; general and departmental. A general undergraduate endowment is not program major specific. Departmental endowments are established to assist a student in a specific program of study. A student must be approved in the program of study as a “major” for consideration of award of a departmental endowment.

Freshmen and first term transfer students are considered for award of an undergraduate general endowment after they are matriculated, main campus and full-time students for the Fall/Spring semester. University Policy is Academic Merit Scholarships (Presidential Scholarships, Scott-Ellis Scholarships, and/or Campbell Grants) will be comprised in part or in total from institutional, endowed, or other sources of gift aid available to the University. If the student has been awarded an Academic Merit Scholarship and is subsequently awarded an undergraduate general endowed scholarship then the academic merit award will be reduced by the full amount of the undergraduate general endowed scholarship award.

The minimum requirements to be considered for award of an endowed scholarship are:

  • Must be a matriculated main campus full-time student for the Fall/Spring semester
  • Must meet donor eligibility requirements (i.e. demonstrated financial need, residency, church membership, academic performance)

In addition good conduct, good citizenship, community service, and other such similar criteria are considered in the selection of scholarship recipients.

Students must maintain a Campbell University cumulative grade point average of 2.3 or higher after the completion of the first semester and each subsequent semester. Students’ academic standing will be reviewed at the end of each semester.

Departmental endowments are established to assist students in a specific program of study. The student must be approved in the program of study as a “major” for consideration of award of a departmental endowment. Instructions for applying for a departmental endowment are posted on the Campbell University website at https://www.campbell.edu/financial-aid/scholarships/endowed-scholarships/

The website also has a series of program mini-guides which will allow students to search for departmental endowments.

All undergraduate endowed scholarship recipients are required to write a thank you letter to their donor. Scholarship awards are placed in pending status until the thank you letter is turned in to the Endowed Scholarship Program Office. After the initial award notification letter is mailed and two e-mail follow-ups are sent to the student’s Campbell email account, the award is canceled if the thank you letter is not turned in.

Graduate students must apply for departmental endowments through their respective schools.

Refund/Repayment Policy

In the event of a student’s complete withdrawal from the University for a Particular Enrollment Period, refunds/repayments are calculated according to the Higher Education Act and its subsequent modifications. Campbell University will comply fully with federal regulations as required. This method will be used to determine refunds/repayments for Title IV aid as well as state and institutional aid. This includes students who do not follow the university’s policy for official withdrawal.

The refund policy is listed in its entirety earlier in this document.
