Trevecca awards annual scholarships in recognition of a student's academic achievement prior to enrollment at TNU.  Awards are determined when the student transfers to Trevecca and will establish the maximum academic award for that student during his/her time at the University. A student must have two full-time semesters post high school graduation in order to receive a transfer academic scholarship. The table below names the scholarships and amounts, and it lists the requirements for transfers. Transfer academic scholarships are awarded once the final transfer GPA is determined. Feel free to submit your college transcripts and apply to Trevecca to see what scholarships you will be offered. Should you have any questions, please email

Annual awards are distributed in two equal payments. A student may receive only one academic scholarship per semester. Institutional scholarships at Trevecca can be applied only to tuition, fees, room and meal plan and can never generate a credit balance. Institutional scholarships require a minimum load of twelve hours each semester and will not be awarded beyond eight full-time semesters. No institutional scholarships will be given for external academic programming in which no tuition is paid to Trevecca. The academic scholarships will be renewed in the fall semester of each academic year provided the student maintains the required renewed GPA (3.3 cumulative). Students who lose their original award level due to their GPA, may regain their award level in the future if they can raise their cumulative GPA to the required level (3.3).

All students are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for Institutional scholarships at Trevecca.
