Student Eligibility Requirements

  1. Complete your application to Colorado Christian University's College of Undergraduate Studies (including all supplemental items) by December 20, 2020 in order to be admitted to the university by the January 1, 2021 deadline.
  2. Be eligible to receive our Distinguished Achievement Scholarship or Trustees' Scholarship. Recipients typically have a at least a 3.8 GPA and an ACT score of 28, or SAT composite score of 1320. If test scores are not submitted, the required GPA range is 3.8 - 4.0. See our COVID-19 test-optional policy for the 2021-22 academic year. You may verify your eligibility using our Scholarship Calculator.
COVID-19 Test-Optional Policy

Colorado Christian University has implemented a test-optional policy for the 2021-22 academic year. This will allow most freshman applicants the option to be considered for admission without submission of ACT, SAT or CLT scores. We recognize the challenges that prospective students are experiencing because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic in registering for and taking these standardized tests. To that end the Office of Undergraduate Admission is able to evaluate most applicants for admission without the use of test scores by reviewing the rigor of high school coursework, written essays, and spiritual recommendation.

* About the World Changers Scholarship

Competition is by invitation only and occurs on campus early during the spring semester prior to intended enrollment. Scholars who have health concerns or who are uncomfortable to compete in-person should consult with their enrollment counselor about joining the event remotely. Additional items may be required to compete remotely. Three full-tuition World Changer Scholarships will be annually awarded on a competitive basis to new students who qualify for a Distinguished Achievement Scholarship or Trustees' Scholarship. All students invited to attend and who participate in the event but who are not selected for a World Changer Scholarship will receive a $1,000 scholarship in addition to their Trustees' Scholarship.

All scholarships are renewable for up to four years (divided over a maximum of eight semesters) contingent on continuous enrollment. To maintain eligibility, students must maintain a cumulative 3.5 GPA at CCU and meet all student aid eligibility requirements.

The World Changers Scholarship will cover full tuition, which includes the block rate for 12-18 credits, and any amount for additional credits above 18. World Changers Scholarship recipients are responsible for all fees and other costs associated with attending CCU. World Changers Scholarship recipients forfeit any eligibility to other CCU based grants and scholarships.
