Scholarships offered by the athletic department to students participating on a varsity athletic team. Not all student athletes will be offered a scholarship. Athletic scholarships cannot be stacked on top of other SAGU institutional aid.
Eligibility and amounts may vary. Contact Athletic Department for details. First-year students must have a good Christian character; meet two of the following three academic standards of the NAIA: ACT score of 18, SAT score of 860, and a GPA of 2.0; display athletic ability; obtain references from their current pastor and coach; and be involved in their church and community. Institutional scholarships apply only to tuition and fees and donor athletic scholarships may be awarded in the amount equal to or less than one-half of the current room and board amount. These scholarships are granted through the Athletic Department and approved by the Financial Aid Committee. Federal Financial Aid must be finalized before an athletic scholarship is disbursed.
Continuing Students must be favorably evaluated by their coach; maintain a high spiritual standard by meeting attendance requirements for chapel and prayer meetings; maintain the NAIA academic standard of a 2.0 GPA, passing 24 total hours in the previous two semesters, and making normal progress toward a recognized Bachelor's degree; maintain a high social standard; and maintain an amateur status in the sport in which one participates. Federal Financial Aid must be finalized before an athletic scholarship is disbursed.
NOTE: In case of athletic related injury, the student athlete remains on scholarship but under different covering. Other injuries will be dealt with on advisement of certified medical personnel. He/she must still meet all scholarship requirements. For further details, contact the Athletic Department.
