Welcome, Parents!

As a parent of a high school student, you are a key participant in the college decision process. You and your student will probably have a lot of questions as you start searching for schools and you might be wondering where to begin.  

  1. Visit

    First, we would always love to have you on campus. Visiting Samford is one of the best ways to determine whether or not Samford is a good fit for your student.
  2. Scholarship Opportunities

    Your next question could be about scholarship opportunities. As long as students apply to Samford by December 15st of their senior year, Samford automatically considers them for merit-based scholarships. Learn more >>
  3. Tuition & Financial Aid

    For more information about financial aid, please fill out our Tuition Cost Calculator (hyperlinked). This calculator will assist you in understanding all of the opportunities that exist as Samford to assist your student in funding their college education.
