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)

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 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 sessions.

Satisfactory Academic Progress for Undergraduate Students

Campbell University has the following Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy for students who receive financial aid.  These standards require that a student progress toward an undergraduate degree during all periods of enrollment, including periods when a student did not receive financial aid.  Campbell University will be consistent in applying the SAP policies to full & part, independent and dependent students.

Graduate program SAP is available on the Financial Aid Policies website.

Minimum Financial Aid SAP Standards for undergraduates:

  • Cumulative GPA
    Maintain required Cumulative Grade Point Average(CGPA) based on matrix below, or higher (a qualitative measure) 
    Credits Attempted Minimum Cumulative GPA
    1 - 23 1.4
    24 - 39 1.6
    40 - 63 1.8
    64 or more 2.0
  • Cumulative Attempted Hours
    A student must successfully complete at least 67% of their cumulative attempted credit hours (a quantitative measure) course.
  • Maximum Time Frame
    Make positive progress toward a program of study within 150% of the average published program length.

Financial Aid Eligibility Statuses

  • Eligible – Student is meeting the minimum academic standards or has no academic history.  Fully eligible for financial aid.
  • Warning – Student did not meet minimum standards for CGPA and/or 67% completion rate in the previous evaluation period.  Student is still eligible for financial aid, but must reach all minimum standards by the end of the next evaluation period to maintain eligibility.
  • Ineligible – Student has had two consecutive evaluation periods below minimum standards for CGPA and/or 67% completion rate.  Student is ineligible for financial aid.
  • Timeframe – Students seeking an AA degree must complete the AA requirements within a maximum number of credits attempted (including transfer credits) of 93.  Students seeking a bachelor’s degree must complete the BA requirements within 186 attempted hours, including transfer hours.  If a student exceeds these credit hour limits, they are not making progress toward a degree within the 150% federal requirements; therefore student is ineligible for financial aid.

When is academic progress evaluated?

A student’s SAP will be evaluated at the end of each academic semester (i.e., fall, spring and summer semesters).

Successful completion of a class is defined as earning a grade of A, B, C, D, TR, CR, CT, NG or P.

Non-Passing Grades: Unsuccessful grades of F, I, IC, NC, and W will be used in determining completion rate and timeframe.

Repeat courses: All repeat courses will be used in determining completion rate and timeframe.  Actual letter grades are not included in the cumulative GPA.  Students will only be allowed to retake a course once and receive federal funding.

Audited credit hours: Courses taken on an audit basis are not counted when determining the completion percentage or for purposes of determining your cumulative GPA.

New financial aid students with prior academic history:

Campbell University students with prior academic history will be evaluated at the time they apply for financial aid.  They will receive one of three financial aid statuses:

  • Eligible – Student is meeting the minimum academic standards or has no academic history.  Fully eligible for financial aid.
  • Warning – Student did not meet minimum standards for cumulative GPA and/or 67% completion rate in the previous evaluation period.  Student is still eligible for financial aid, but must reach all minimum standards by the end of the next evaluation period to maintain eligibility.
  • Timeframe – Students seeking the AA degree must complete the AA requirements within a maximum number of credits attempted (including transfer credits) of 93.  Student has attempted 186 credit hours toward a bachelor’s degree. If a student exceeds these credit hour limits, they are not making progress toward a degree within the 150% federal requirement, therefore, student is ineligible for financial aid.
  • Transfer students and transfer credit hours:  Students transferring to Campbell University are required to have all prior college transcripts evaluated for transfer credits.  All credit hours accepted by Campbell University will be used to determine 67% completion rate and maximum timeframe of 150%. 

How to re-establish eligibility?

  • A student must bring his/her GPA and completion rate up to the minimum standards of the required CGPA, per matrix, and 67% completion rate.  A student will be ineligible for financial aid and cannot be reimbursed during this time.
  • Mitigating Circumstances: If a student has experienced mitigating circumstances (illness, family death, change of major) during the most recent evaluation period, they may submit an appeal to reinstate financial aid eligibility.  The student must explain, in the appeal,* what has changed that will now allow them to meet the SAP requirements.  The student must also *submit supporting documentation with the appeal. Appeals must be *received within 30 days from the start of class.  If the request is granted, the student will be placed on the following Financial Aid Eligibility Status:
    • Probation – The student is expected to improve to minimum standards by the end of the next evaluation period.  The student is eligible for financial aid, but must meet minimum standards by the next evaluation period.  
    • Only ONE appeal will be granted during student’s time at Campbell University.

If the request is not granted, the student will remain ineligible for financial aid until they meet all minimum standards.

  • Timeframe Mitigating Circumstances: if a student has not completed their program of study within the 150% timeframe and there are mitigating circumstances (illness, job related, family illness, change of major), they may submit an appeal supplemented with a degree audit to reinstate financial aid eligibility for ONE semester only.

Students are allowed ONE approved appeal.

STUDENTS WILL BE NOTIFIED, OF THEIR SAP STATUS, AT THE END OF EACH SEMESTER

NOTICE TO APPLICANTS

Student Financial Assistance Programs Disclosure of Social Security Account Number

 

Section 7(a) of the Privacy Act of 1974 (5U.S.C.552a) requires that when any federal, state, or local government agency requests an individual to disclose his or her Social Security Account Number, that individual must also be advised whether that disclosure is mandatory or voluntary, by what statutory or other authority the number is solicited, and what use will be made of it. Accordingly, applicants are advised that disclosure of the applicant’s Social Security Account Number (SSAN) is required as a condition for participation in student financial assistance programs sponsored by the federal government, state, or the local government, in view of the practical administrative difficulties that would be encountered in maintaining adequate program records without the continued use of the SSAN. The SSAN will be used to verify the identity of the applicant and as an account number (identifier) throughout the life of the loan or other type of assistance in order to report necessary data accurately. As an identifier, the SSAN is used in such program activities as determining program eligibility, certifying school attendance and student status, determining eligibility for deferment or repayment of student loans, and for tracing and collecting in cases of defaulted loans. Authority for requiring the disclosure of an applicant’s SSAN is grounded on Section 7(a) (2) of the Privacy Act, which provides that an agency may continue to require disclosure of an individual’s SSAN as a condition for the granting of a right, benefit, or privilege provided by law where the agency required this disclosure under statute or regulation prior to Jan. 1, 1975, in order to verify the identity of an individual.

When is academic progress evaluated? A student’s SAP will be evaluated at the end of each academic semester (i.e., fall, spring and summer semesters).

 

New financial aid students with prior academic history: Campbell University students with prior academic history will be evaluated at the time they apply for financial aid.  They will receive one of three financial aid statuses.

  • Eligible – Student is meeting the minimum academic standards or has no academic history.  Fully eligible for financial aid.
  • Warning – Student did not meet minimum standards for cumulative GPA and/or 67% completion rate in the previous evaluation period.  Student is still eligible for financial aid, but must reach all minimum standards by the end of the next evaluation period to maintain eligibility. A student cannot be on warning for two consecutive semesters.
  • Maximum Timeframe –Graduate students must earn their degree within the timelines set by the graduate school per their graduate program.  If a student exceeds these credit hour limits, they are not making progress toward a degree within the 150% federal requirement, therefore, student is ineligible for financial aid.
  • Transfer students and transfer credit hours:  Students transferring to Campbell University are required to have all prior college transcripts evaluated for transfer credits.  All credit hours accepted by Campbell University will be used to determine 67% completion rate and maximum timeframe of 150%. 

Successful completion of a class is defined as earning a grade of A, B, C, D, TR, CR, CT, NG or P.

Non-Passing Grades: Unsuccessful grades of F, I, IC, NC, or W will be used in determining completion rate and timeframe.

Repeat courses: All repeat courses will be used in determining completion rate and timeframe.  Actual letter grades are not included in the cumulative GPA.  Students will only be allowed to retake a course once and receive federal funding.

Audited credit hours: Courses taken on an audit basis are not counted when determining the completion percentage or for purposes of determining your cumulative GPA.

 

How to re-establish eligibility?

  • A student must bring his/her GPA and completion rate up to the minimum standards of the required CGPA, per matrix, and 67% completion rate.  A student will be ineligible for financial aid and cannot be reimbursed during this time.
  • Mitigating Circumstances: If a student has experienced mitigating circumstances (illness, family death, change of major) during the most recent evaluation period, they may submit an appeal to reinstate financial aid eligibility.  The student must explain, in the appeal,* what has changed that will now allow them to meet the SAP requirements.  The student must also *submit supporting documentation with the appeal. Appeals must be *received within 30 days from the start of class.  If the request is granted, the student will be placed on probation.
    • Probation – The student is expected to improve to minimum standards by the end of the next evaluation period.  The student is eligible for financial aid, but must meet minimum standards by the next evaluation period. 
    • Students are allowed ONE approved appeal.

If the request is not granted, the student will remain ineligible for financial aid until they meet all minimum standards.

  • Timeframe Mitigating Circumstances: if a student has not completed their program of study within the 150% timeframe and there are mitigating circumstances (illness, job related, family illness, change of major), they may submit an appeal supplemented with a degree audit to reinstate financial aid eligibility for ONE semester only. If this application is granted, the student will be placed on the probation.

If the request is not granted, the student will remain ineligible for financial aid.

Students are allowed ONE approved appeal.

 

STUDENTS WILL BE NOTIFIED, OF THEIR SAP STATUS, AT THE END OF EACH SEMESTER

NOTICE TO APPLICANTS

Student Financial Assistance Programs Disclosure of Social Security Account Number

 

Section 7(a) of the Privacy Act of 1974 (5U.S.C.552a) requires that when any federal, state, or local government agency requests an individual to disclose his or her

Social Security Account Number, that individual must also be advised whether that disclosure is mandatory or voluntary, by what statutory or other authority the number is solicited, and what use will be made of it. Accordingly, applicants are advised that disclosure of the applicant’s Social Security Account Number (SSAN) is required as a condition for participation in student financial assistance programs sponsored by the federal government, state, or the local government, in view of the practical administrative difficulties that would be encountered in maintaining adequate program records without the continued use of the SSAN. The SSAN will be used to verify the identity of the applicant and as an account number (identifier) throughout the life of the loan or other type of assistance in order to report necessary data accurately. As an identifier, the SSAN is used in such program activities as determining program eligibility, certifying school attendance and student status, determining eligibility for deferment or repayment of student loans, and for tracing and collecting in cases of defaulted loans. Authority for requiring the disclosure of an applicant’s SSAN is grounded on Section 7(a) (2) of the Privacy Act, which provides that an agency may continue to require disclosure of an individual’s SSAN as a condition for the granting of a right, benefit, or privilege provided by law where the agency required this disclosure under statute or regulation prior to Jan. 1, 1975, in order to verify the identity of an individual.

 

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 $6,195 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 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.

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 5% 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 $420 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.

All Advanced Course ROTC students (Juniors and Seniors) without scholarships receive a monthly subsistence allowance of $420 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.

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 and/or Scott-Ellis Scholarships) 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.
