Higher Education with a Higher Purpose

40+ in-demand programs, 100% online


Nebraska Christian College, a campus of Hope International University, prepares Christian students to find their “something more” – that is, to passionately pursue their callings and impact the world for Christ. In addition to our on-campus programs, NCC has partnered with Point University – an accredited, nonprofit Christian university – to bring more than 40 in-demand online programs to NCC students in greater Nebraska and the surrounding areas.

NCC and Point University are committed to developing exceptional leaders who make a significant impact after graduation. The rigorous curriculum – which includes biblical and theological studies, arts and sciences, and various professional studies – and the learning environment are designed to encourage students to grow spiritually, intellectually, socially, physically, and professionally.

Making Your Education Affordable

Student Loans

Eligible students enrolled at least half time are qualified for the Federal Direct Student Loan Program and may borrow need-based subsidized loans or unsubsidized loans. Students and parents can also take advantage of private loans available through various lenders.

 

Grants

Students demonstrating financial need can qualify for federal and state grants that do not need to be repaid. The amount of aid awarded is based on the recipient’s financial need, cost of attendance, number of credits per semester, and other factors. Some students may also qualify for additional federal and state grants based on eligibility.

 

Scholarships

Scholarships are available for online students and are based on academic performance, leadership, and Christian character. Scholarship recipients must maintain good standing with the University and the applicable grade point average to retain their scholarships.

 

Veteran Benefits

Our online veteran students have access to the same financial aid resources available to campus students, with the added benefit of tuition assistance under the Post 9/11 GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon Program.
