Lubbock Christian University

Lubbock Christian University is a special place in West Texas, and we want prospective students to experience it firsthand. There’s no substitute for a visit to LCU, and we’re so convinced you’ll love LCU as much as we do that we’re willing to put money on it. We will provide travel reimbursement of $100-350 for a new incoming freshman or transfer student who has applied to LCU and lives 150 or more miles from campus. Please read the criteria below and on the Destination LCU form for complete details.
