Since 1939, Caldwell University has been recognized as a leader in providing a transformative, outcomes-driven education to our diverse student body. We are focused on the future - your future - and evolving our curriculum to keep up with the demands of a modern, global economy.

It is the mission of Caldwell University to provide a quality, private education to all students, regardless of financial need. Generous merit scholarships are available to all applicants, and additional aid is often available to students who demonstrate financial need on their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Caldwell remains a test-optional institution, and students can apply with no fee using the Common Application or Cougar Application.
