SCHOLARSHIPS | Applications OPEN Feb 1

  • The Crossing Volunteer Scholarship | APPLICATIONS CLOSED

    Amount: $250

    The Crossing College is a ministry of The Crossing Church, and we recognize that no church could function effectively without volunteers! This award is for a passionate, committed volunteer at one of The Crossing’s campuses.

    • Can explain the mission of The Crossing and how he/she helps fulfill the mission
  • First-Time College Scholarship | APPLICATIONS CLOSED

    Amount: $200

    Not everyone is cut out for a traditional college journey, but EVERYONE is a lifelong learner! The individualized instruction at The Crossing College allows students from ANY academic ability to find success. This scholarship was created to award non-traditional students without prior college experience for their courage in continuing their education.


    • Pursuing DBS or ACLM

    Jesus’ final command was to “GO, and make disciples!” But that doesn’t always mean we have to stop our lives and move to a third-world country! Often, the largest ministry area that God gives us is right in front of us: our workplaces. Leading and loving like Jesus in a secular workplace is a unique opportunity to bring His hope to a hurting world.  If you are in leadership at your place of work, the Associates in Church Leadership & Ministry can help you develop skills that point your people back to the ultimate Leader.


    • Pursuing ACLM

FAFSA Information

A Note about FAFSA and Federal Student Tuition Reimbursement/Refunds: 

FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and Federal student tuition reimbursement/refunds via 1098-T forms for taxes are governmental programs. The Crossing College has chosen not to pursue governmental accreditation, thus we cannot participate in these programs. This not only keeps our program costs lower, but we also believe that this is the direction God has called our program, and trust Him to provide for every student mentally, emotionally, spiritually, physically and financially.
