Student Financing

Financial Aid Programme

The Cave Hill Campus Financial Aid Programme offers Partial Tuition Fee Waivers to new and continuing undergraduate students who are nationals of the Caribbean Community. New students must have formally accepted a place at the Cave Hill Campus.

The Financial Aid Programme assists students who have already exhausted other options for payment of their tuition fees and can demonstrate financial need.
 

Value of the Award

The Partial Tuition Waiver Grant IS NOT a cash award and DOES NOT APPLY to economic costs.
 
The maximum grant for any one student will be $3000 per semester, based on the Faculty in which they are registered.

An eligible student being considered for financial aid, who has received an award from another source that does not fully cover their tuition fees, may only receive financial aid relative to the outstanding balance.
 

Eligibility

For the Partial Tuition Waiver applicants must be nationals of the Caribbean Community who:
  1. Have gained admission or qualified for admission for full-time or part-time study to read for a three or four-year undergraduate degree programme in any discipline offered at the Cave Hill Campus. Funding will not be available to persons enrolled in self-financing programmes.
  2. Have a minimum GPA of 2.0. Cumulative GPAs will be considered for continuing level one students. Degree GPAs will be considered for students at levels two and three. Prior academic records (CSEC, CAPE, Associate Degree, etc.) will be considered for new students.
  3. Have a household income of less than Bds$25,000.  In cases where more than one member of the household is a registered student at the Cave Hill Campus a maximum household income of Bds$40,000 will be considered.
  4. Priority will be given to persons who are undertaking their first undergraduate degree.
