Okay, so I understand that carrying a firearm on to any state campus is pretty much prohibited. What about carrying on private, for-profit school campuses such as ITT, University of Phoenix, Morrison, etc? I realize that each campus might have different policies, but are there any federal or other laws preventing ccw carry?

What state are you in? The laws are very different depending on where you are.

Ahh.

Hangunlaw.us is always a good place to start. http://www.handgunlaw.us/states/nevada.pdf

They say:
NRS 202.3673 Permittee authorized to carry concealed firearm while on premises of public building;
exceptions; penalty.
1. Except as otherwise provided in subsections 2 and 3, a permittee may carry a concealed firearm while he is on the premises of any public building.
2. A permittee shall not carry a concealed firearm while he is on the premises of a public building that is located on the property of a public airport.
3. A permittee shall not carry a concealed firearm while he is on the premises of:
(a) A public building that is located on the property of a public school or a child care facility or the property of the Nevada System of Higher Education, unless the permittee has obtained written permission to carry a concealed firearm while he is on the premises of the public building pursuant to subparagraph (3) of paragraph (a) of subsection 3 of NRS 202.265.
(b) A public building that has a metal detector at each public entrance or a sign posted at each public entrance indicating that no firearms are allowed in the building, unless the permittee is not prohibited from carrying a concealed firearm while he is on the premises of the public building pursuant to subsection 4.

Opencarry.org says a bit more directly:

College Carry: Concealed Carry Prohibited by Statute - Open Carry Generally Legal

NOTE: Even if Legal, Students May be Subject to Academic Sanctions
