Freshman Aid


Eastern Nazarene College understands the importance of affordability for families pursuing higher education and awards students financial assistance to help cover their college costs.

ENC offers scholarships and grants in recognition of a student’s academic achievement and provides additional need-based support. A student’s financial aid award will be offered after acceptance to ENC.

100% of incoming freshman will receive a merit scholarship based on the student’s GPA and SAT/ACT scores. The SAT is based on a total score of English Based Reading & Writing (EBRW) plus Math. The ACT is based on a total score of English, Reading, Math, and Science.

The table below names all ENC scholarships, the requirements and amounts.

Institutional scholarships at ENC can be applied only to tuition and can never generate a credit balance. Annual awards are distributed in two equal payments – one each semester. Institutional scholarships require a minimum load of twelve credit hours each semester and will not be awarded beyond eight full-time semesters. Scholarships will be renewed in the fall semester of each academic year provided the student maintains the required renewed GPA.

All eligible students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for institutional scholarships at ENC.

FAFSA ineligible students and international students should complete the International & FAFSA Ineligible Student Financial Aid Application to be considered for institutional scholarships at ENC.
