Academic Scholarships

Academic Scholarships (Effective Fall 2013)
Trevecca Nazarene University awards annual scholarships in recognition of a student’s academic achievement prior to enrollment at TNU. Awards are determined at the time a freshman enters Trevecca and will establish the maximum academic award for that student during his/her time at the University. A student must qualify as an incoming freshman in order to receive an academic scholarship. The table below names the scholarships and amounts, and it lists the requirements for freshmen and transfers.

*Incoming first-time freshmen who score 29 and above on the ACT [or 1280 and above on the SAT (Critical Reading + Math)], and who have at least a 3.5 cumulative high school GPA, will be eligible to compete for one of the two full-tuition scholarships available each year. Interested students can click here for the McClurkan Scholarship application.

The academic scholarship awarded to an incoming freshman will be renewed in the fall semester of each academic year provided that the student maintains a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0. These scholarships require that a student takes a minimum load of twelve hours each semester, and these scholarships will usually not be awarded beyond eight full-time semesters. Students who fail to maintain the required renewal GPA will forfeit their academic scholarship for the coming school year. Students who lose their original award level due to their GPA may regain their award level in future academic years if they raise their cumulative GPA to the required level.

Transfer students who are enrolling in the spring or fall semester in pursuit of their first undergraduate degree may be eligible for one of the academic scholarships. Prior to enrollment at TNU, the applicant’s two previous semesters (omitting summer sessions) must be full-time. The transfer student must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. The awards for transfer students are recommended by the Office of Enrollment Management upon receipt of all final official transcripts.
