Graduate Program Financial AidFor twelve years, Belhaven College, now Belhaven University, has been named in The Student Guide to America’s 100 Best College Buys, demonstrating our commitment to keeping your college education affordable.  Approximately 90 percent of the students attending Belhaven University receive some form of financial assistance, including federal and state grants, loans and work-study, as well as a variety of institutional scholarships and grants.

Because Belhaven University aims to make a Christian education possible for any student, we work with you and your family in a financial partnership.  Every Belhaven student benefits from our commitment to offering high quality, affordable education—an endeavor that begins with costs well below the national average for four-year private colleges.  Our financial aid programs are generated from the basic premise that college costs are primarily a family responsibility, but our merit-based and need-based assistance in partnership with the family can assist with expenses.

If you have questions, please call 1-800-960-5940 (toll free) or 601-968-5933 (local) or e-mail studentaid@belhaven.edu.
