Scholarship payments

The scholarship is designed to be distributed evenly among multiple courses in the student's degree program at Colorado Christian University, and may not exceed the cost of a course. The scholarship may only be used toward courses offered directly by CCU.

  • The recipient of the $10,000 scholarship will receive up to a $1,000 tuition credit toward each of the first 10 courses in the student’s degree program.
  • The recipient of the $5,000 scholarship will receive up to a $500 tuition credit toward each of the first 10 courses in their degree program.
  • Each $1,000 scholarship recipient will receive a $250 tuition credit toward each of the first four courses in their degree program.

Tuition credits will be deducted from the student’s account balance. All course billings must be paid, or have a payment arrangement contract in place, prior to the first day of the class. The scholarship funds must be used by the Summer 2024 semester. Any unused portion will be forfeited after that date.

Students with a lapse in enrollment of more than 365 days will forfeit the scholarship even if part of the scholarship has already been awarded.

  • This contest is for new students only: 
    • Students who registered for, and did not drop, any CCU CAGS course prior to October 6, 2021, are not eligible for this scholarship contest. 
    • Students who are actively registered for a class prior to October 6, 2021, are not eligible for this scholarship contest. (i.e. If you haven’t completed a course but are actively registered to start, you are not eligible.) 
    • Students who are actively attending a class prior to October 6, 2021, are not eligible for this scholarship contest. (i.e. If your first class started October 4, 2021 — which you haven’t completed — you are not eligible.)
  • Graduate students with a conferred CCU bachelor’s degree are eligible for this scholarship, provided they have not enrolled in any graduate-level coursework at CCU after their undergraduate degree was completed and prior to October 6, 2021.
  • Scholarships cannot be deferred beyond the deadline to start classes in the Key Deadlines section.
  • Scholarships are not transferable to another person.

However, once the scholarship is exhausted, the student will be eligible for a PEP or CHEPP discount. (They cannot be used at the same time.) Please Note: The switch of discounts only happens at the beginning of a term.
