To determine this list, Christian Universities Online compared Net Price tuition data gathered from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). Net Price is determined by subtracting the average amount of federal, state/local government, or institutional grant or scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees, books, and supplies, as well as the weighted average for room and board and other expenses. This ranking was produced using this single data point. Every school in the ranking is a member of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) or member eligible. Site editor Anna-Rebekah Orr states that the goal of the ranking is to identify schools whose cost is not prohibitive to families on a budget. Orr goes on to say, “It is encouraging to know that students looking for affordable Christian higher education have so many options.”
