Overview of Scholarships and Grants

Traditional undergraduate students in CCU's College of Undergraduate Studies have several options to help lower the cost of their college education.

Unlike loans, scholarships and grants do not need to be repaid.
  • CCU Scholarships and Grants — CCU awards several renewable, merit scholarships based on academic achievement and excellence to both First-time Freshmen and Transfer Students. CCU offers athletic, music, scripture-memory, and other institutional aid for incoming students. In addition, CCU also offers grants, which are given solely based on financial need. The benefit of both scholarships and grants is that this is free money. CCU scholarships and grants help defer costs for you and is money that you never have to pay back. A higher GPA or test score may qualify you for a higher merit scholarship. These are typical scores for reference only. For specific merit scholarship awards, please refer to our scholarship calculator.
  • CCU Partner Scholarships — Colorado Christian University has established Dual Credit, Legacy, and Partner Scholarships to provide prospective students the opportunity to pursue their education through the College of Undergraduate Studies.
    • The Legacy Scholarship is designed to assist children and/or siblings of CCU alumni and current students to continue the CCU tradition.
    • The CCU Academy Scholarship is available to incoming CCU freshmen who are currently enrolled in CCU's Dual Credit Program at their high school or to high school students enrolled in CCU's Online Dual Enrollment Program.
    • CCU has partnered with dozens of Christian high schools to provide financial opportunities for prospective students associated with these organizations to pursue their education at CCU.
  • Federal Grants — The Federal government awards various types of grants to undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need and meet other criteria. Unlike loans, they do not have to be paid back. In all cases, the student must submit the FAFSA to help determine eligibility.
  • State Aid — Students at Colorado Christian University may be eligible to receive Colorado’s College Opportunity Fund (COF) stipends to offset their cost of attendance. COF stipends are paid to eligible undergraduate students by the State of Colorado when they attend a participating institution of higher education. Students may also be eligible to receive a Colorado State Opportunity Grant, a need-based grant awarded to Colorado residents subject to annual state funding availability.
