Traditional Nursing Scholarships

We are able to offer institutional nursing scholarships based on GPA and ACT scores. In order to see if you qualify, you must:

  1. Apply to Belhaven to begin the process of your acceptance to the University.
  2. Submit/report your high school GPA and either your ACT or SAT test scores.
  3. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

When we have all your information (academic record, portfolio, and FAFSA), you will receive a comprehensive financial aid package influenced by all three of these factors. Feel free to contact the admission office at any time at 1-800-960-5940 or to learn more or to meet with an admission counselor.
