Even as I graduate and leave campus for the final time, I won’t stop asking myself, How can I seek, serve, and grow?

Academic Scholarships

First-Year Students

Send us your high school transcripts early!

We take your highest high school GPA (after your sixth high school semester) when calculating your academic scholarship. We also use your highest ACT or SAT score, no matter when you send it to us. So your financial aid package will never go down – it will only go up. Bethel’s academic scholarships for freshmen are awarded based on a cumulative 4.0 high school grade point average and ACT or SAT-1 composite score. All full-time students who apply for admission to Bethel will be automatically considered for academic scholarships.

If you have questions, contact Tony Graber, director of financial aid.

Academic progress

We want to encourage you to push yourself, so even if you do not enter Bethel earning an academic scholarship, you may become eligible for one. If you earn a 3.0 cumulative GPA or above at the end of an academic year, you will be eligible for the Merit Scholarship.
