Affordability

Academic

All students at Bethel receive an academic scholarship that is awarded based upon high school GPA and either ACT or SAT equivalent for freshmen or the cumulative transfer GPA for students choosing to finish their degree at Bethel.

The academic scholarship can be combined with 1 Activity Scholarship that can be performance, departmental, career pathway or service and club based. Check those out at https://www.bethelks.edu/affordability/grants-scholarships/activity

Your admission application also serves as your application for the Academic Scholarship. Our admission application can be found at https://engage.bethelks.edu/apply/

The Financial Aid Office will automatically award you a scholarship based upon official GPA from your transcripts and official test scores from your best text composite score. Please feel free to estimate your award based upon your knowledge of your current GPA and best test score. But remember, it could increase if either of those help you reach the next scholarship level. We only take into account your best test composite score, so go ahead and take it again!
