Cornerstone University is a like-minded, accredited, Christian liberal-arts college just two miles south of Kuyper College. Students who intend to enroll in these programs will work closely with Kuyper College's registrar, who is the advisor to the education students, to navigate the program requirements. Education students are considered degree seeking students by Cornerstone University. As such, these students can access Cornerstone’s online student center to access their academic information. Students are also encouraged to utilize the education program advisor at Cornerstone to ensure smooth program progression. To seek admission to the program, students must complete the admissions process as detailed at www.cornerstone.edu. Upon admission, the students will be registered for their first semester of classes at Cornerstone by the Academic Office at Kuyper College. New consortium students are also required to complete an orientation at Cornerstone University prior to their first classes. Only students in good standing at Kuyper College will be allowed to begin a consortium program of study.
