Creighton University understands that not all students have the bandwidth to pay the school fees in one go. This is why the university supplies students with financial aid as well as scholarships. This financial aid comes from institutional, federal, private and state sources.

A bonus that the university provides is that all students who apply to the colleges under the university are directly considered for general merit-based scholarships. These scholarships are awarded on a rolling basis. The student must maintain a steady GPA to further qualify for these scholarships, financial aid and grants.

Students that are successful in gaining any type of aid will be directly contacted by the concerned authorities to further along the process. Students must keep in mind to submit necessary documents to qualify for such aid. A deeper understanding of how to apply for aid is provided below.
