"Applying to and selecting a college is one of the most consequential decisions of your life, made more stressful in these uncertain times. At Longwood, transforming lives is at the heart of what we do, and that mission has never been more important.

This spring and summer, our Admissions team is ready and eager to work with you to navigate whatever challenges you face. Please don't hesitate to reach out to them. And as we begin to turn our eyes to the start of the Fall 2020 semester in August, I look forward to welcoming you to the Longwood family."

Financial Aid

Paying for college is one of the biggest concerns for students and families. Understanding financial aid offers can be confusing, especially if you have received offers from multiple schools.

The Financial Aid staff is ready to help with any questions you may have about financial aid or options for covering the cost of education.

Call us at (434) 395-2077 or email finaid@longwood.edu

We are still actively accepting applications and awarding freshmen merit scholarships for Fall ‘20.

We are waiving the SAT and ACT score requirement for Fall ’20 students and will continue to accept unofficial copies of your high school transcript to provide you an admission decision as soon as possible.
