WITH YOUR CHILD AT CREIGHTON, YOU'LL HAVE PEACE OF MIND

Parents of future students at Creighton University College of Arts and Sciences can expect to find not only an academically challenging liberal arts and sciences education, but a supportive and welcoming community for their child—and for themselves.

If you and your family live in the area, likely you already know about Creighton’s reputation for being among the top Midwest universities with an incredibly caring environment. But if you live elsewhere, you might be wondering:

  • “Will my child feel welcomed?”
  • “Where will he go on holidays if he can’t make it home?”
  • “Will she make friends and stay busy in her free time?”

Rest assured, your child will be welcomed, supported and encouraged. Our students are part of a community that supports their academic pursuits and is interested in what they’re interested in. They work side by side with professors on some of the most incredible undergraduate research opportunities in the United States. They can be active and make new friends, thanks to Creighton’s dynamic student life. And more likely than not, that new friend—be it your child’s roommate, classmate or someone they met at the library—will extend an invitation to Thanksgiving dinner.

You might also be wondering about paying for college—and about return on investment. Maybe you’re questioning the advantages of a liberal arts education when it comes time for your child to find a career. Specifically, you may be asking: “Will my child have a great liberal arts education but no job after graduation?” Within eight months after graduation, more than 97 percent of our graduates are employed, enrolled in graduate or professional school or serving in a volunteer program.

Each year, our Financial Aid Office administers more than $200 million in student financial aid. Beyond that, they’ll be available to answer your questions about the financial aid process, from filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to applying for Federal Work-Study and loan programs.

We want you to know that we’re here for your student—and we’re here for you. If you have any questions or concerns, just let us know.
