Thanks for taking the time to learn about Campbellsville University! We are a comprehensive Christian institution with a firm foundation in the liberal arts. Our values of fellowship, personal fulfillment, and academic integrity can be found in every Campbellsville course.

Transfer Students
Transferring to Campbellsville is easy. Prospective students in good standing may submit an Application for Admission form (with a non-refundable $20 application fee), and then contact our Office of Admissions to receive your official transcript. If there are less than 24 college semester hours recorded on your transcript, you must also send an official high school transcript. As long as credits meet Campbellsville’s scholastic requirements, they will be accepted for transfer credit. Visit this page for more details about transfer scholarships and program eligibility.

Graduate Admission
We take graduate studies seriously. To enroll in one of our master’s or pre-professional degree programs, prospective students must complete the Graduate Studies Admission application and submit their college/university transcripts. In addition, two letters of reference are required for most graduate programs (Social Work, Counseling, Special Education, MBA, MAOL, and TESOL require three letters). We invite you to learn more about our advanced-level coursework and renowned graduate faculty.

Dual Credit Program
Want to get a head start on college courses while you’re still in high school? Campbellsville University’s dual credit program has created partnerships with over 20 high schools in the area, so that younger students can earn CU college credit. Taught at the high school during a typical school schedule, the dual credit courses fulfill general education requirements that many majors require. Acceptance into the program is based on academic merit, and high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors with a cumulative GPA of 3.25 or higher are encouraged to apply. Visit this page to learn more about the dual credit application process.

Financial Aid
We want Campbellsville to be affordable for all students. To help learners achieve their academic dreams, over 90% receive some form of financial aid, including grants, scholarships, merit-based awards, work-study programs, and loans. In the arts, drama, music, journalism, and athletics programs, we also offer specialty performance grants for students who qualify. Our merit-based scholarships are granted to any incoming students with sufficient academic credentials.

Finally, we are proud to provide financial assistance through the church and other Christian-based endowment programs. Most Campbellsville students are eligible for church-based aid, regardless of their particular Christian affiliation. Visit this page for more information about our financial aid programs.

International Education
Campbellsville’s Center for International Education (CIE) is our main hub for overseas exchanges, international research, and other opportunities for students and faculty. We seek to promote our university values through cross-cultural programs that improve diversity and inclusivity at Campbellsville. We want our students to see the world from a new perspective, and our international students to benefit from CU’s academic resources and unique campus culture.

With the English as a Second Language Institute (ESLI) and our year-round student activities — such as festivals, outdoor adventures, and club events — exchange students can feel more at home in an unfamiliar environment. We welcome you to Campbellsville! Visit this page to learn more about our international center.
