Financial Aid and U

Alderson Broaddus University realizes each student’s financial situation and resources are unique. We make every effort to help students afford a college education, in fact, 99% of our students receive financial aid.

Financial Aid helps fill the gap between the costs of attending college and the amount the students and their families can afford to pay. These funds may be comprised of grants and scholarships, work opportunities and low-interest student loans.
