Financial Aid

**NOTE: Constitution Day is a national holiday celebrated to ensure that students in our country gain an increased knowledge and appreciation for the Constitution of the United States of America. Observed on September 17th of each year, the day coincides with the date that the delegates of the Constitutional Convention signed the document in Philadelphia in 1787. In December 2004, the United States Congress passed legislation requiring that all educational institutions that receive federal funds implement educational programs relating to the United States Constitution in commemoration of Constitution Day. This year, the Financial Aid Office will recognize Constitution Day the week of September 17, 2014.

b.    An All American Lunch will be served after Thursday chapel – burgers, hotdogs, chips or fries, ice cream, apple pie, tea, Coke and Dr. Pepper.

 

Financial Aid Summary
 

Criswell College is now participating in Title IV programs, which provide Federal Financial Aid for our students. The Criswell school code is 04121800.

Criswell College is also blessed with many friends and supporters who contribute prayerfully and financially to help Criswell students.This financial aid is available to new and continuing students taking on-campus courses during the Fall and Spring semesters. 

All students seeking financial aid must submit a completed FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and a Criswell College Supplemental Financial Aid Application each academic year. Funds are limited and awarded on the basis of financial need, merit, affiliation, skills, and the date the application is received in the Financial Aid Office.

The FAFSA and Criswell College Supplementary Financial Aid Application for the 2014-2015 academic year must be submitted by APRIL 15, 2014. After this date, the Criswell College Supplementary Financial Aid Application will no longer be available for submission. 

All applications and corresponding documentation must be turned in together by the deadline. Refer to the college's financial aid web pages for all pertinent information. 

If you are requesting a church match grant, your church must submit the Church Application and check to the Financial Aid Office by JULY 15, 2014, for the Fall 2014 semester and by DECEMBER 15, 2014, for the Spring 2015 semester.
