SAGU seeks creators, dreamers, and change-makers. SAGU Lions are service-minded and look for opportunity in surprising places. They take truth and apply it to their callings to impact the world for this moment.

Your experience
Students describe SAGU as relational. Our Christ-centered environment fosters strong bonds with professors and other students, creating a comfortable and meaningful college experience.

You will grow among friends as you learn in a hands-on, Bible-based environment that prepares you to be confident in your skills and grounded in your faith after graduation.

SAGU's Bible-based academic curriculum will challenge and stretch you to become the best in your field as you pursue your Christian purpose. Small class sizes allow you to know your professor and receive personalized instruction.

The relationships you form with Christian roommates and peers will provide a network of support and a family of friends with bonds that last beyond college. Lions are there to help, encourage, and pray for one another.

Uncommon destinations
Do you want to impact the world? SAGU just completed the end of a 10-year mission, reaching more than 170 destinations. And now, the new 20/20 FocUS vision is to reach all fifty stats, ten most populated cities, top ten unreached people groups, and ten largest tribes in America in the next 8 years.

This mission reaches every academic discipline. History majors have participated in archaeological digs at biblical geographic sites. Business majors provided training to help setup microbusinesses. Education majors teach English as a second language. Bring your own impactful ideas to SAGU.

Attending SAGU is a rich investment that impacts the rest of your life. SAGU’s tuition, fees, and room and board are 20% lower than the average four-year private Christian university. Scholarships, grants and other financial aid are available, making paying for college simple and affordable.

SAGU is just south of Dallas/Fort Worth. Students have access to abundant stores, theaters, restaurants, museums, theme parks, professional sports arenas, and more. Plus, Texas provides a strong job market for opportunities after college.
