The financial aid and scholarship offerings you’re eligible for can vary, depending on the type of degree you’re seeking (among other factors). Choose your student population below to see the types of assistance that you may qualify for.
Determining Your Bottom Line
Chances are, you’ll pay less than our listed tuition. In 2021-22, 96 percent of our students received gift aid (that’s money they don’t need to pay back). In addition to academic scholarships and gift aid, work study and loans can also reduce the amount you need to pay out of pocket. We can help you estimate what you might receive using our Net Price Calculator.
Financial Aid Staff
Our team provides support to both current and prospective Butler families. We’re available to answer questions about student’s aid and the financial aid process.
You can find scholarships in all kinds of places—community foundations, churches and other religious organizations, employers, and more. First, though, you need to determine your eligibility. That can take time, but if you’re motivated, the rewards can be real.
