Cumberland University

Financial Services

Almost every student attending Cumberland receives some form of financial aid. Some you have to pay back, but others are outright free. The information you need to apply for them is all here. You have to re-apply for most loans and grants every year – it’s not a one-time process.

Also, don’t think of scholarships as something you can only get as an incoming freshman. Cumberland offers a full variety of scholarships available to sophomores, juniors, specific majors, community-based awards – it’s quite a long list. Financial aid can open many doors.

Office hours for Student Financial Services are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. If you need help navigating the process, contact the Office of Student Financial Services during regular business hours at – 615.547.1399 locally or 800.467.0562, ext. 1399 or


Cumberland University makes no distinction in its financial aid policies or procedures on the grounds of age, sex, religion, color, national origin, or physical handicap.
