Academic Scholarships

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.

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.

Bethel’s academic scholarships for transfer students are awarded based on cumulative college GPA of transferable hours. If you have 24 or more transferable credit hours, you are eligible for an academic scholarship. All full-time students who apply for admission to Bethel will be automatically considered for academic scholarships. Awards are made following a review of the application, which includes the high school transcript/s and/or college transcript/s for transfer students, as well as ACT or SAT test scores.
