FAFSA Information

A Note about FAFSA and Federal Student Tuition Reimbursement/Refunds: 

FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and Federal student tuition reimbursement/refunds via 1098-T forms for taxes are governmental programs. The Crossing College has chosen not to pursue governmental accreditation, thus we cannot participate in these programs. This not only keeps our program costs lower, but we also believe that this is the direction God has called our program, and trust Him to provide for every student mentally, emotionally, spiritually, physically and financially.



And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus. 

Philippians 4:19
