Value matters.

CU offers financial aid to 95% of incoming first-time, full-time freshmen.

Cornerstone University is committed to affordability and has been recognized as one of the top 50 affordable Christian colleges by Christian Universities Online. That is why our students' average percentage of debt has dropped, even when other Michigan schools have seen it rise (MLive, 2014).

Cornerstone students come from all kinds of economic backgrounds. We are committed to making your college investment affordable and will help you and your parents manage the cost of an undergraduate degree. File the FAFSA to begin the financial aid process.
