Scholarships & Aid

Creighton University School of Pharmacy and Health Professions offers merit- and need-based scholarships to qualified students. Entry-level student tuition for all programs can be found on the Creighton financial aid website.


The School of Pharmacy and Health Professions awards scholarships based on both merit and financial need. Merit scholarships are based on all the contents of the application, such as overall grade point average, prerequisite math/science grade point average, standardized test scores (Physical Therapy and Pharmacy), quality of admission essays, interview performance, and participation in service and leadership. Admission-based scholarships are competitive and limited in amount. 

Scholarships for the duration of each program typically range from $10,000 to $80,000. These scholarships are split in equal amounts on an annual basis and are renewable as long as a “B” average is maintained in the program. Notifications of scholarship occur at the time an admission offer is made. Scholarships are generally awarded to the top 20% of our admitted student pool. 

Once enrolled in the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions, students can apply for additional scholarships on an annual basis. These scholarships range from $500 to full tuition in value, and can be stacked on top of the initial merit or need-based awards. Contact the SPAHP Office of Admission or see the Creighton University financial aid website for a list of scholarships.

Payment (entry-level tuition and fees)

Students are responsible for full-time tuition for all semesters in which they are enrolled and completing required didactic or clinical course work, including summers. No student will be allowed to pay tuition on a per-credit-hour basis without the written permission of the associate dean for academic affairs. University tuition, fees and/or room and board charges are payable at the time of registration and in advance for an entire semester or summer session unless arrangements are made to pay monthly installments using the University’s Monthly Electronic Transfer Plan. Participation in this plan will be limited to the unpaid balance after all financial aid credits have been applied. Folders describing payment plans and services are mailed each summer to enrolled students.
