    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 students’ advisor, to navigate the program requirements.

    Through the collaborative arrangement, students are granted the opportunity to study at Cornerstone as Kuyper students; Kuyper College awards the students’ degrees and (in consultation with the appropriate personnel at Cornerstone) determines the course of study and course equivalencies. Students who elect a major in collaboration with Cornerstone University must complete the admissions requirements as indicated at www.cornerstone.edu. These students are considered non-degree seeking students by Cornerstone University. Upon admission, the students will be registered for their first semester of classes at Cornerstone by the Academic Office at Kuyper College. New collaborative 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 collaborative program of study.
