What Students Are Saying

3.95 Average Rating
don't let the scenery make you want to go to dbu. dbu is expensive so make sure you really want to go there for your spiritual growth and and education.

Visit the campus, and you will automatically fall in love! Apply for scholarships!!!
CHRISTINA from Austin, TX
Just remember that money isn't everything. A lot of students who come to DBU come from ALOT of money, but at the same time there are a lot of students who are on scholarships. Don't burry yourself in worrying about money. If DBU is where you are supposed to be then God will provide.
Kailey from Dallas, TX
Register early to get not only the classes you want, but also the time slots you want. Know where the help labs are at and attend them regularly. Study in the library more than in your room.
Hannah from Glen Rose, TX
Don't be afraid. Everything works out really smoothly and quickly. It is really intimidating at first, but at the end of the day everyone is in the same boat as you and the faculty and staff live to help all of DBU's students and I've come to find that they LOVE freshmen!
Holly from San Antonio, TX
Make sure to apply for the Christian Leadership Scholarship because it does cover a fair amount of the cost. Make sure to visit campus and get a feel for the campus before coming here. Make sure to go to SWAT which is the orientation week, so that you can get to know your peers before classes start.
Daniel from El Paso, TX
Buy books online from amazon, chegg, textbooks.com. Books at all & any campus are ridiculouslly expensive from the bookstore. Attend everything at S.W.A.T becuase that is were you meet a lot of people plus, it's fun!
Nataly from Frisco, TX
Just pray up, and seek God as to if He would have you go here. These guys at DBU prayed over my application, read over it, and sought out God's decision. It's a great school with wonderful people.
David from Center, TX
Apply for as many scholarships as you can! It's well worth your time. Also, make sure that you're coming here because of your field of study. We have an amazing music program, Biblical studies program and education program, but I think everything else is mediocre and you could probably go somewhere else and save a lot of money and get the same standard of education.
Bethany from Plano, TX
apply early, and apply for every scholarship you think you may qualify for. if you have any intrest in pursuing any kind of christian ministy, apply for the ministerial grant. apply for the christian leadership scholarship, as it is a sure way to take a nice chunk of the cost of the tuition.
