Undergraduate Cost of Attendance

Driven by a passion to educate tomorrow’s Christian leaders without requiring them to take on crippling debt, the University offers tuition that is significantly lower than other options: University tuition is over five times less expensive than the national average!4

Undergraduate Tuition Rate

2016-2017 Undergraduate courses: $150 per credit hour
