Freshman Admission

In order to provide ample time for families to review financial aid offers and finalize enrollment decisions, the Office of Admission has extended the $500 enrollment deposit deadline from May 1 to May 15 for all students who submitted a FAFSA. Additional extensions will be granted for those who experience further delays in financial aid processing. Learn more about the new FAFSA form launch here, and CNU financial aid here.

Financial aid offers to new students enrolling Fall 2024 are estimated to be available in early April for those who completed a 2024-25 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This timeframe is tentative and subject to change, based on the U.S. Department of Education's changes to the 2024-25 FAFSA, the resulting delay in delivering results to institutions, and software updates and testing necessary to begin processing financial aid packages. Notification of financial aid awards will be sent via email to students, with instructions for viewing and accepting aid through a personalized online portal.

At Christopher Newport you’ll learn the answers to two very important questions: What am I good at? and What do I love to do? Whatever your passions lead you to study – from engineering to leadership, from music to accounting – the liberal arts and sciences are the foundation of your academic endeavors. Here we don’t teach you to do something; we prepare you to do anything.

We offer both on-campus visits and virtual options for you to learn more about Christopher Newport.
