Academic Scholarships

Academic scholarships are based on a combination of GPA and test scores at the time of admittance; only average qualifications are listed below. SAT or ACT writing section scores are not considered. Recipients will be granted the single highest award for which they qualify and will receive official notification of their award shortly after acceptance to the university.

All academic scholarships are renewable for up to four years. Award amounts listed are for students enrolling for the first time at Azusa Pacific University in fall 2016. Please refer to previous catalogs for scholarship/grant awarding information for enrollment that began prior to fall 2016.
