The average amount of student loans borrowed by First Time Full Time freshman during the 2015-2016 academic year was $4,451. To finance students’ and their families’ investment in their education, Calvary’s Financial Aid office utilizes many sources including, but not limited to:

Institutional aid (scholarships, tuition reduction opportunities, etc.)

External aid (external scholarships and alternative sources)

Federal Aid (grants, loans)

Study and Work Program (Making College Affordable)

Military Benefits (GI Bill, Tuition Assistance, etc.)

Education Paid Programs

Calvary University is committed to providing ways for students to learn and grow without accumulating the education debt that can be so crippling. We believe students shouldn’t have to mortgage the future to get the education they need. We are also committed to decreasing dependence on the federal financial aid system, so that students can make choices about their education, rather than having those choices predetermined by governmental regulation.

Calvary University is leading in the development of two paths to achieve these commitments: the Study Work Program and the Nikao Leadership Institute. These offer students excellent opportunities to learn and grow, while providing significant financial aid throughout students’ academic career at Calvary. These also help set Calvary University apart, as Calvary is developing the financial sustainability needed in order to move away from Title IV funding and offer students a better way to handle their education costs.
