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.

**Note: As international students are typically ineligible for Federal Aid, they should only submit the Criswell College Supplemental Financial Aid Application.

The FAFSA and Criswell College Supplementary Financial Aid Application for the 2015-2016 academic year must be submitted by APRIL 15, 2015. 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 DECEMBER 1, 2015 for the Spring 2016 semester. If not received by these dates, the student will not qualify for the Criswell Church Matching Grant. The student will only receive the funds from the church if the church selects to have the funds posted to the student's account despite the Matching Grant not being applied.

Continue to check back periodically for the upcoming deadlines for the 2016-2017 academic year.
