Any new incoming on-campus students currently attending a C&MA church will receive a 50% tuition discount.  This discount is made up of institutional grants and scholarships, i.e. a student’s academic scholarship, and other scholarships/grants they may be eligible for through Crown.

If not already at the 50%, an additional C&MA discount will be added to reach the 50% tuition discount. Students must complete an admissions application and demonstrate financial need as determined by the FAFSA.

This amount will be locked in as long as a student remains a full-time on-campus student. The amount will not increase year over year as tuition increases.

Returning students who attend a C&MA church during their time at Crown, when not originally a C&MA attendee during admissions to Crown, are not eligible for the discount.

At Crown College we offer competitive scholarships to international student applicants.

However, our Financial Aid Office will only be able to supply a portion of the necessary funding to experience a college education at Crown. Students are encouraged to consider all financial obligations (such as medical insurance, transportation to/from Crown, etc.) when making their application.

United States Department of Immigration and Naturalization Services (INS) laws require us to verify the ability of international students to pay all tuition and living expenses for the time they are studying in the U.S. Therefore, all international student applicants (students who do not have US citizenship) are required to submit the Financial Statement and the Official Certification of Sources of Funds contained in the Application for International Undergraduate Admission. Please contact us with any questions.
