    I do believe that you are getting what you pay for. They automatically offer academic scholarships, and then of course if you do music or sports or art there are more scholarships for that as well. They really work with you and it's easy to go here without being in too much debt after college.

    Yes, the school is kind of pricey... however there is no other school that cares and educates their students as well as Carson-Newman

    Though expensive on its original price tag, most if not all students receive some type of financial aid. Carson Newman gives out a decent amount itself.

    Even though the college is expensive, they have donors and alumni that randomly give scholarships to help students. Financial aid is a strong point for this school and they are willing to work with you. Departmental scholarships are offered also, but are given to outstanding and hardworking students.
