Preview days Scholarship Competitions

  • April 19-20, 2013

There will be an opening assembly and three periods of testing after Saturday breakfast. Following the testing, there is an awards luncheon with departure from campus no later than 1:30 p.m.

Special activities are planned for PARENTS who are here (including a campus tour, an informal "coffee/visiting" time, a financial aid seminar, and a question/answer session.)

Since we can accommodate a limited number of visitors, please submit a completed registration form.

We generally know the results of the competition within two to four weeks following the examination date. You will be notified then. All participants who are not Presidential or Dean's Scholarship recipients are still eligible to receive our other academic scholarships ranging from $9,000-$2,500 (based on a combination of GPA and ACT/SAT score). There will  be one President’s Scholarship ($10,000) and one Dean’s Scholarship ($8,000) awarded each testing weekend. Scholarships are renewable each year by maintaining a 3.0 GPA.

Testing will consist of three periods with breaks between. You will be allowed 55 minutes for the General Knowledge test of 100 questions. These will be from the areas of English, art, geography, history (U.S. and world), law, business/economics/accounting, math (you are encouraged to bring a calculator with you), music, physical education, psychology/sociology, science, and religion/Bible. The Writing Assessment test (also 55 minutes) involves reading a short article (provided) and responding to a question. The Spiritual Assessment section gives you an opportunity to describe your church background and involvement, and to talk about your faith.

We generally know the results of the competition within two to four weeks following the examination date. You will be notified then. All participants who are not Presidential or Dean's Scholarship recipients will receive a scholarship (maximum of  $5,500 per year). Five Presidential Scholarships of $10,000 per year will be awarded.  Five Dean's Scholarships of $8,000 per year will be awarded. Scholarships are renewable each year by maintaining a 3.0 GPA.
