Important Eligibility Requirements

All institutional aid is subject to coordination with federal, state, institutional, and outside aid policies. In most cases, institutional aid is limited to 100% of tuition for students living on campus in the residence halls and 75% for commuter students. Some exceptions exist for premier academic and elite talent awards. Federal grants and outside awards are applied to Evangel charges before EU institutional scholarships and grants. The sum of all gift aid from inside and outside of EU is capped at direct costs.  Institutional scholarships are non-refundable and cannot roll from term to term. Full time enrollment and a 2.0 cumulative GPA is required to receive and renew institutional scholarships and grants. (Note: A 3.0 GPA is required for students receiving the VSP/Founders Scholarship.)

Evangel scholarships and grants are supported by the generosity of donors.  Students are required to complete a Scholarship Profile Survey each year of enrollment. The survey will not result in an increase in scholarships, but will be used to match the institutional scholarships you have received with potential donor related funds.  When a match is found, your institutional scholarships may be underwritten or replaced by private and/or endowed funds.  It can be found on the student portal and is part of the registration checklist.

Institutional policies and scholarships are subject to change.
