You Can Afford a Trevecca Education

You Can Afford a Trevecca Education

Summer means vacation and camps and family reunions. If you’re the parent of a high schooler, it may also mean touring college campuses in order to find that home away from home for your child.

I hope you’ll consider Trevecca Nazarene University. We offer academic programs based on Christian values that promote scholarship, critical thinking, and meaningful worship for students in preparation for lives of leadership and service to the church, the community, and the world at large.

“But,” you may ask, “Isn’t a private Christian university education expensive?”

Actually, I’m pretty sure you can afford a Trevecca education; it’s more affordable than you think. I love this video that explores three common myths about paying to attend Trevecca.


And hear a first-hand experience from an incoming student, Patrick Satta:

If anyone is considering Trevecca, or has ruled it out because they think they’re not smart enough, or that it’s too expensive, here’s the truth: [This video … is] absolutely correct. I had a mediocre high school career, then had many setbacks, failures, and dead ends while at community college. This spring was my last semester, and it was BY FAR my best ever with a GPA of 3.3. With all the stress, being in a play, and huge, 6-course load, by all counts I should’ve failed everything. However, God always comes through, and it’s especially noticeable when your situation seems impossible. I was accepted to Trevecca last September… before I had redeemed myself academically. During the hardest and most stressful moments of the semester I forced myself not to worry & focused on Philippians 4:13 & Romans 5:3-5.

“When it comes to the cost of Trevecca, it is pricey; however, it’s not unaffordable. Between my scholarships, Pell Grant, & loans, I’m saving nearly $25,000 per year. That brings my tuition down to only be about $7,500 per year. That is less than my brother’s tuition for UNC Charlotte in 1999!

“I was called to work with youth back when I was a teenager. I dismissed, ignored, and forgot all about my calling. At the end of last July, when I was 25, I was driving down the interstate after speaking with my community college advisor (she’s an ordained minister). I was asking, ‘Lord, what do You want me to do? I convinced myself that I was called to something, but I keep hitting walls.’ The Lord spoke to me and said, “Stop dwelling on all your failures and just do what I’ve called you to do. You know what I’ve called you to do.’ Ever since that day, I have been following His path and everything [has] … fallen into place.

“If you follow the Lord’s path for you, He will supply all your needs!”

I’d love for you to also read a letter I’ve posted on our University website about choosing Trevecca for your child. Please contact Randy Kinder (615.248.1324 or rkinder@trevecca.edu) in the Office of Admissions and let Trevecca help you find a financial path that will allow you to give this great gift to your child.
