Tuition Scholarships

Academic Scholarship: Students who display excellence in academic achievement are given this award. The award is determined based upon cumulative GPA and highest ACT or SAT score. Academic Scholarships are renewed each year as long as the student is maintaining a 2.5 cumulative GPA. The Academic Scholarship must be applied to tuition costs.

Christian Education Partner Scholarship: Students who attended a mission partner Christian high school and earned a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher are eligible for this scholarship. Students living on campus are awarded an NNU annual scholarship of $4,000 for up to four years depending on the number of years they attended the high school. One year of attendance at the high school equals one year of NNU Mission Partner Scholarship. Students living off campus will be eligible for a $2000 annual scholarship.

Professional Allowance: Students eligible for this discount include full-time, unmarried, traditional undergraduate dependent students whose parent or guardian's primary income is based on being a Nazarene or non-Nazarene missionary, senior pastor, chaplain, pastoral staff, District Superintendent, or Assistant District Superintendent. Also eligible are dependent students whose parents are missionaries or staff of Mission Aviation Fellowship. Dependency status is defined in the same manner as the FAFSA definition when being considered for this award.

Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC): Students attending NNU are eligible to apply for Army ROTC two-, three-, and four-year scholarships. These pay for tuition, fees, and room charges (meal plan not included) for each year that the scholarship is received. Students who do not receive the Army ROTC scholarship, but are participating in ROTC classes and who are approved by the ROTC adviser, will be given a room stipend if living on campus.

Ministry: Freshmen students who are Nazarene and majoring in ministry are given a ministry scholarship. Subsequent renewal of this requires continued enrollment as a ministry major and is determined by the faculty of the College of Theology and Christian Ministries.

Miscellaneous Scholarships: Miscellaneous scholarships are also awarded for athletics, music, and forensics based on student achievement.

Nazarene and CCCU Tuition Remission: Dependents of full-time faculty and first-line administrators at U.S. and Canadian Nazarene colleges/universities or Nazarene Theological Seminary and Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) schools can apply for up to a 90% tuition allowance.  The number of allowances given is limited. Contact the Office of Financial Aid for details. The requirements as described by the General Church Department of Education, CCCU or NNU are in force for this allowance. Applicants must provide a signed Tuition Remission Recommendation Form from the institution where the parent is employed. Dependency status is defined in the same manner as the IRS/tax definition for those being considered for this award.

Grad-Back Tuition: Students taking traditional undergraduate courses who have completed a baccalaureate degree at NNU receive a 50% reduction in the per credit cost of tuition.
