Financial Aid Calculator

Financial Aid Calculator

Estimate Your Financial Aid and Scholarships

The net price calculator for our College of Undergraduate Studies is designed to help prospective students and their parents estimate financial aid and scholarships the student may be eligible to receive in the College of Undergraduate Studies.

The net price calculations are based on full-time enrollment in the College of Undergraduate Studies. Based on your input, the calculator simply provides an estimate of how much financial aid you may receive while enrolled at CCU. When you enroll at CCU, your actual financial aid will be calculated using your official transcripts and test scores.

Incoming Freshmen

For incoming freshmen with less than 15 post-high school college credits, scholarship levels are determined by high school GPA and may require an ACT, SAT, or CLT test score.

Colorado Christian University accepts CLT examination results as an alternative to the ACT. However, the cost calculator does not offer an option to input a CLT score. Students can utilize a concordance to source an ACT equivalent to the CLT score as a point of reference for scholarship estimation. There will be no sub-scores when concording to the ACT, so the CLT will not be superscored. CCU will take the highest scored exam submitted to determine merit scholarship eligibility. Students can take and submit scores as many times as they wish, and CCU will recalculate merit scholarship based on the highest score. NCAA regulations require that potential student-athletes must still take the ACT/SAT at an approved location to become eligible to participate in NCAA sports — CLT scores are not accepted.

CCU Test-Optional Policy

Colorado Christian University has implemented a test-optional policy for the 2022-23 academic year. This will allow most freshman applicants the option to be considered for admission without submission of ACT, SAT or CLT scores. The Office of Undergraduate Admission is able to evaluate most applicants for admission with or without the use of test scores by reviewing the rigor of high school coursework, written essays, and spiritual recommendation. However, to qualify for a Distinguished Achievement or Trustees’ scholarship, a standardized test score is required. See our Scholarships page for more information.
