Scholarships

Ohio Christian University would like to commend and reward you for your hard work in high school. Our scholarships are awarded upon acceptance and renewed each year as long as you maintain the required GPA and full-time enrollment.

The Presidential Scholarship is awarded to students with a 27 ACT or higher. Students must maintain a 3.75 GPA for the Presidential Scholarship to be renewed each year.

The Dean's Scholarship is awarded to students who have between a 23 and 26 ACT. Students must maintain a 3.5 GPA for the Dean's Scholarship to be renewed each year.

The Honors Scholarship is awarded to students who have a 21 or 22 ACT. Students must maintain a 3.25 GPA for the Honors Scholarship to be renewed each year.

The Merit Scholarship is awarded to students who have a 19 or 20 ACT. Students must maintain a 3.0 GPA for the Merit Scholarship to be renewed each year.

The Good Neighbor Quality Student Grant is awarded to students who have graduated from a high school in one of the following counties: Pickaway, Ross, Fairfield, Fayette, Pike, Hocking, Madison, Franklin or Licking. Students who attend and graduate from a Christian School or Homeschool are also eligible.

OCU will match any money that a student's church contributes to his or her education with up to $500 per semester.

The Sibling Grant is offered to all siblings who attend OCU at the same time and are both classified as dependent students.

Although scholarships are awarded primarily based on the student's ACT score (or SAT equivalent), each student will be evaluated holistically considering other academic achievements such as GPA and affiliations including being a pastor's or missionary's dependent, alumni's dependent or Churches of Christ in Christian Union member.
