Admission Requirements

Campbell University’s admissions policies are applicable to all potential students. Full policies on Admissions can be found in the University catalog.

These policies, coupled with rolling admissions each 8-week accelerated term, allow adult students provisional admission while awaiting receipt of all required documents. All first-time college students (those students with no prior college experience) must undergo initial entry assessment and counseling.

The primary factor in the admissions process is prior academic performance in high school or in college-level courses. Other factors may include high school performance, work experience, military service, optional standardized test results, and a student’s potential to contribute positively to the Campbell environment. There are two routes for admission: (1) applicants with only high school graduate experience, and (2) applicants with prior college experience.

  1. High school graduate-only applicants: The primary factor in the admissions process is cumulative unweighted high school GPA and/or military experience.
  2. Applicants with prior college experience: The primary factor in the admissions process is previous college performance with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 from the most recent college experience and/or military experience (Teacher Education programs require a 2.5 GPA).

The first step is to complete the application, which includes submitting all unofficial transcripts. There is no fee and no obligation.

Official Transcripts 

Upon acceptance, students must submit official transcripts from all previous institutions. Official transcripts may be sent electronically to or mailed to Campbell University Online at PO BOX 264, Buies Creek, NC 27506.
