    Dual Credit, Legacy, and Partner Scholarships

    The awards listed below are for new CCU students enrolling in 2014-15, and are guaranteed for up to four years as long as the student maintains satisfactory academic progress (SAP) and is continuously enrolled in CCU's College of Undergraduate Studies.

    After meeting admissions requirements, eligible students may qualify for up to two scholarships listed below. Eligible students may qualify for $1,250 from either category: Dual Credit Scholarship, Legacy Scholarship, Partners in Christian Education (PICE) or Partners in Spiritual Formation (PISF) for a total of $2,500 per year over four years.

    Eligible students may stack legacy and partnership scholarships on top of academic/merit scholarships, but must be admitted to the University by May 1st. Students who receive a Dual Credit, Legacy, and/or Partner Scholarship may also be eligible for federal and/or CCU institutional aid.
