Financial Assistance


The goal of the financial assistance program at Cumberland University is to assist students who otherwise could not afford to attend the institution. Thus, Cumberland University maintains a comprehensive financial assistance program to assist students with their college expenses. The purpose of the financial assistance programs offered through the University is to supplement, rather than to replace, family and student resources, and the University expects families to assist to the greatest degree possible. These programs, which include scholarships, grants, loans, work study, and part-time employment, are awarded in various combinations and amounts to assist in meeting individual student needs. While the Federal government provides a substantial portion of Cumberland University financial assistance, the institution also receives funding from state agencies, individuals, and local organizations. All Federal financial assistance programs require the assessment of financial need based upon parents' and students' abilities to contribute toward educational expenses. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be completed and submitted to the United States Department of Education by all students wishing to apply for Federal or State Aid.
