Tuition and Aid

We understand that cost is a huge factor in your college decision. We strive to keep our costs affordable so you can study the Word of God and prepare for a life of ministry. You will receive a quality, Christ-centered education tailored to your individual goals and interests. Our biblically-based and regionally accredited education assures you that you will receive not only a valuable degree, but also a life-changing experience!

Let us help you pay for your Faith experience!

We are so excited about what God is doing here and about the experience you could have on campus that we strive to make it as affordable as possible for you! With 96% of our students receiving thousands of dollars in financial aid, Faith is more affordable than you may think. In fact, the average financial aid award package this year is $11,380.

In addition to the state, federal, and institutional aid, our incoming students receive, we annually award up to $175,000 in institutional aid to our returning students as well!

Here are the three easy steps to receiving financial aid.

Step 2: Complete the FAFSA

You must complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) in order to qualify for financial aid, including institutional, federal, or state aid. Read more about applying for FAFSA. After completing your FAFSA, don’t forget these important steps.

  • Confirm Your FAFSA: Within three weeks after filing your FAFSA you should receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) which lists out the information you provided on the FAFSA. Make sure to review that SAR for accuracy and if need be make any updates or changes by following the instructions provided on the SAR.
  • Provide Any Requested Documentation: The US Department of Education usually selects at least 30% of all FAFSA applications for verification. If you are selected, you may then be asked to supply tax information that was used to organize your FAFSA (federal tax return, tax transcript, W-2s, etc.). After the verification has taken place, you will receive a letter letting you know what aid is available to you. Financial aid awards cannot be finalized until verification has been completed.
