Many sources of assistance

Over 90% of Erskine students receive some form of financial assistance from Federal, State and Institutional aid sources. Erskine offers a variety of scholarship opportunities that recognize our students’ academic abilities, athletic talent, and honor their dedication to the performing arts, community service, and the ARP church. You may be surprised at how much your child can receive.


Don’t think that a new student had to be perfect in high school to receive financial aid; many Erskine students carried a high school GPA between 3.0 and 4.0. It is also surprising how many organizations offer assistance that you might not be aware of.
