Undergraduate Admissions

A college education should change your life.

It should point you in a direction where what you know, who you are, and how you live will have an impact on those around you. What you learn, the relationships you form, the skills you develop, and the experiences you gain must be centered on something solid and serve a higher purpose.

The Bible is the foundation for everything that we do — not just understanding how to interpret the Bible, but how to integrate it into every part of your life. Coming here is going to challenge you in almost every area of your life: socially, academically, and spiritually.

Choose your experience.

As a part of the University, each student becomes part of the Cairn family.  Often, students and professors study, share meals and fellowship, and become part of one another’s lives during their time together.  The campus is large enough to offer a broad cultural experience yet small enough to provide you with a supportive, community atmosphere.
