Undergraduate Financial Aid Overview

98% of the students at Christendom College receive some form of financial assistance every year. The College has a strong commitment to providing a comprehensive financial assistance program to its students. Students may be eligible for one or more of the following forms of financial assistance:

  • Need Assistance: loans and grants based on students establishing calculated need with the College.
  • Merit Assistance: scholarships based on student’s college test scores and academic performance.
  • Family Plan Discounts: based on simultaneous enrollment of siblings.

All students have the opportunity to earn extra money from student jobs at the College. Students can apply for student jobs on a competitive basis.

Although Christendom is one of a handful of colleges or universities in the nation not to participate in any Federal funding programs, it does offer a comprehensive donor-funded Financial Aid Program.

  • Academic Scholarships
  • Athletic Scholarships
  • Need-based Loans and Grants
  • Virginia Resident Tuition Assistance Grant
  • Sibling/Family Plan Discount Program

Please note that Christendom does not use the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Christendom uses a third-party financial aid application and processor – College Board CSS Profile. In order to determine if you qualify for need-based assistance, you will need to apply for aid online at www.cssprofile.org. The CSS Profile will be used to determine a student’s eligibility for Christendom College’s institutional grant and loan programs. All students seeking institutional aid must complete the CSS Profile, regardless of whether they are a citizen of the United States, Canada, or another country. The CSS Profile code for Christendom College is 5691.
