Davis College - Pursue God


All scholarships administered by the college are subject to review by the Scholarship Committee and are based upon the availability of funds. No institutional scholarships will be awarded until a FAFSA is filed with the Office of Financial Aid.  Priority will be given to early applicants.

Scholarships are available to full-time, matriculated students paying the full tuition block rate (either on campus or online), unless otherwise noted.  Scholarships are available for the fall and spring semesters.  No scholarships are awarded or earned during the summer semester. Students must maintain Federal Satisfactory Academic Progress as noted in the Davis College Catalog. Students who withdraw completely or drop below full-time status during any semester forfeit their institutional scholarships for that semester.

All institutional scholarships are intended to be used as a supplement to state and federal financial aid. A student whose account shows a credit balance as a result of institutional scholarships will not be eligible for a refund from the college and that student’s account will reflect a zero balance after all state and federal financial aid as well as institutional scholarships are applied. No student may have more than 50% of their semester bill covered by institutional scholarships.
