Trinity Bible College offers a variety of scholarships in an effort to provide a more affordable education. To be eligible to receive any institutional scholarships, the student’s official school transcripts must reflect good standing in academics, student accounts and student conduct records. All scholarships with the exception of academic awards require a completed application. Institutional scholarships require that a student be enrolled as a full-time, on campus student and require the student maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0. Conduct is also a criterion for scholarship awards to returning students. No individual student will receive more than 75% off tuition in total combined institutional scholarships. If a student is receiving a substantial amount in private scholarships and/or federal grants, all institutional awards must be limited to no more than the remaining normal direct costs of attending. Scholarship funds will be awarded to qualified applicants as budgeted funds allow. All institutional aid is subject to federal, state, institutional, and outside aid policies.
