The Arlington Baptist University Scholarship is open to US Citizens only who want to enrol as a full-time student at the ABU. Interested applicants should read through the program requirements to know if they are eligible for the scholarship program.
How to qualify for the Arlington Baptist University Scholarship Program 2021
- The student must apply for any financial aid and complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
- Students who receive a scholarship must remain full-time students (12 or more credit hours) for the entire semester. (If withdrawing from a course or courses results in a student being enrolled in less than 12 credit hours during the term, or if a student is unofficially withdrawn from a course or courses resulting in that student being enrolled in less than 12 credit hours during the term, the scholarship will be forfeited. In the case of a scholarship being forfeited, the amount of the scholarship will be added to the student’s statement and the resulting amount will be owed by the student to ABU. If a student is withdrawn or is required to withdraw from ABU due to disciplinary action, the scholarship will be forfeited. Again, the scholarship amount will be added to the student’s account and the resulting amount will be owed by the student to ABU.)
- To apply for any Arlington Baptist University academic scholarships, first-time college students must submit the scholarship application along with your final high school GPA and scores from either the SAT or ACT.
- (A first-time college student with dual credit hours is not considered a transfer student.)
- Academic scholarships and grants are for tuition only and cannot be applied to fees. Most are open only to first-time ABU students.
- Scholarships are to cover no more than the difference between your academic tuition costs and any Pell Grant award. Scholarship credits cannot exceed the balance owed nor be carried over to the next semester.
- Transfer students with less than 30 hours of college credit will be assessed for academic scholarships by their ACT/SAT score and college GPA. If you have accumulated at least 30+ hours of college credit, the college GPA will be the basis for the academic scholarship. If you have attended more than one college, then an average of all transcripts will be used to calculate cumulative GPA.
- Deadlines for new fall applicants is July 31 for the fall semester and December 31 for the new spring applicants.
- Leadership Scholarships are open to both new and returning students but returning students can only apply for the Leadership Scholarships in the fall semester with a July 31st deadline.
