Your future matters.

CU helps you influence the world for Christ.

At Cornerstone University, we are not only preparing students to be better thinkers, we are also equipping them to become better leaders, public servants, athletes, activists and global citizens. With CU, you earn much more than a degree. You also gain a biblical perspective to help you live your life with passion and purpose—whether you become a doctor, an engineer, a teacher or a musician.

You have one life to live: make every bit of it count. Start by following Cornerstone on social media and meet students building lives that matter. We'd also like to learn more of what matters most to you. Tag us in posts about your faith, life and friends: #WhatMattersCU

What does it mean to attend CU? Well, our students pursue degrees in one of more than 60 fields, polish off 1,800 warm chocolate chip cookies every Friday, support global fundraising efforts to end malaria, win national basketball championships and serve around the world. Our community is active, engaged, vibrant and welcoming. And we are excited to meet you.

Begin the CU conversation about potential programs of interest and start the process for earning your financial aid awards. First-time, full-time freshmen average over $19,000 in aid. The process starts by submitting your free online undergraduate application for consideration today.

3. Schedule a Visit

Whether for a few hours or a full day, let CU host you and your family for a visit. During your stay, you'll experience the transformational learning and relationships forged at CU—from spaces like the classroom to the student union, faculty offices, residence halls and athletic fields. We will also point you to students' favorite spots in Grand Rapids: an entrepreneurial, artistic city ranked as a top travel and living destination by publications such as Lonely Planet and Forbes.
