We want to help you and your family pay for your degree from Brevard College!

Financial aid, scholarships, and grants can be confusing. Please reach out to us if we can help you.

For example, you cannot receive both a Half-Tuition and a Merit Scholarship. It's one or the other, not both.

The Fine Arts program awards Fine Arts Scholarships. You cannot receive both a Fine Arts Scholarship and a Merit or Half-Tuition Scholarship.

If you're awarded a Full-Tuition Scholarship, that is the only Brevard College scholarship that you can get. In other words, you can't receive a Full-Tuition Scholarship and any other award at Brevard College including a Half-Tuition Scholarship, Fine Arts Scholarship, Honors Program Scholarship, IWIL Scholarship, or Drumline Scholarship. Of course, we'd love for you to participate in these opportunities! You just want get the program specific awards and the Full-Tuition Scholarship.  

Please see additional fine print for the Full-Tuition Scholarship.

Brevard College will not consider athletics leadership, ability, participation or performance as a criterion in the formulation of any financial aid award or financial aid package.

Living off-campus can impact your financial aid award. When you complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), you'll answer a question about your on-campus or off-campus status. The Financial Aid Office will award you financial aid based on this status. If you are approved by the Office of Residence Life to live off-campus after the Financial Aid Office has awarded you financial aid based on an on-campus status, then your financial aid award could be reduced by up to $3,000 per year.

If you are approved by the Office of Residence Life to move off campus during the academic year, then your financial aid award could be reduced by up to $3,000 per year.

Some awards may be replaced by equivalent donor-based endowed scholarships. These scholarships require a thank you note and/or participation in a donor dinner or reception.

The Fine Print for Full-Tuition Scholarships

“Full-tuition Scholarship” is defined as tuition and fees for one year ($30,650 tuition and fees for Fall 2022/Spring 2023) minus all need-based, gift awards, including Pell Grants, NC NBS, and other state and federal financial aid grants. Additional scholarships provided by Brevard College are included in the Full-tuition Scholarship. For example, the Full-tuition Scholarship recipient can participate in IWIL, Honors, Drumline, and the Fine Arts, yet they will not receive additional awards. The Full-tuition Scholarship also replaces the Half-Tuition Scholarship, Merit Scholarship, or Fine Arts Scholarship, if applicable. The Full-tuition Scholarship also replaces additional Brevard College financial aid programs, including Early Enrollment Fee Grants, need-based institutional grants, Graduation Grants, and other Scholarship Day awards. Loans and outside scholarships, including work-study, are not included in the Full-tuition Scholarship calculation. The Full-tuition Scholarship will remain set at the tuition and fees rate for the entering term of the student. In other words, if the Board of Trustees increases tuition and fee rates for future academic terms, the Full-tuition Scholars amount will not increase accordingly.

Brevard College will not consider athletics leadership, ability, participation, or performance as a criterion in the formulation of any financial aid award or financial aid package.

The Financial Aid Office understands that family and personal circumstances can impact your or your family’s ability to pay for Brevard College. Information from your FAFSA, your application for admission, or your Scholarship Day interview may not fully capture these circumstances.

Financial Aid Appeals provide you and your family with a way to notify the Financial Aid Office of challenges that you may face regarding paying for college.

Brevard College will not consider athletics leadership, ability, participation, or performance as a criterion in formulating any financial aid award or financial aid package.

Continuing students submit Financial Aid Appeals on their my.brevard.edu account under the heading of “Graduation Grant.” The appeal process normally includes a meeting with Financial Aid Staff in an effort to understand further and assess financial aid needs.
