Investing in your education.

The Student Financial Services office is committed to serve God by serving our students. We exist to serve our students by assisting them to obtain financial resources so they can pursue their educational and professional goals and excel as influencers in our world for Christ. Cornerstone University is a privately funded institution-yet our students are never without ample financial support to help them succeed. In fact, 100% of incoming first-time freshmen receive aid from scholarships, grants, and loans, with aid packages averaging $23,811 for our full-time, degree seeking students who enrolled for the Fall 2014 semester. Cornerstone University was also named by Christian Universities Online (2014) in the top "50 Most Affordable Christian Colleges in the U.S."
