Student Scholarship Chart

All Scholarships charted below are for classes beginning Fall of 2014.

Lubbock Christian University awards academic scholarships to beginning freshmen based on ACT or SAT score. Transfer students are awarded based on grade point average. The following academic scholarship levels are available to new students entering in the Fall of 2014 or later.

You must be a full-time student to receive an academic scholarship. Other scholarships are also available. These scholarships stack on top of any federal and state grants for which you may qualify.

There are a few special programs you might be eligible for that would eliminate this offer. For example, a student on an athletic scholarship or a tuition discount would not be eligible.

Apply early. Many grants and preferred loans are issued on a first come first served basis.

Male citizens of the U.S. and male immigrant aliens 18 through 25 years old must be registered with the U.S. Selective Service System to be eligible for federal student loans and grants. Men can register at any post office, or register now on-line.
