Erskine College and Bob Jones University were named first and second in Christian Universities Online’s list of most affordable Christian colleges in the South.
North Greenville University also made the top 25 along with two other South Carolina schools — Charleston Southern University and Southern Wesleyan University.
For the ranking, Christian Universities Online began with a list of schools that are members or member eligible for the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, giving consideration to schools that were in their previously published 50 Most Affordable Christian Colleges and Universities for 2017. The schools were ranked according to their average net price, which is the total cost of attendance minus the average financial aid received.
Bob Jones University just completed its 90th year, 70th in Greenville.
North Greenville University got its start as North Greenville High School in 1893. In 1957, it was accredited as a two-year liberal arts college and discontinued high school courses. Junior was deleted from the name in 1972 and it earned status as a university in 2006.
