NGU Ranked 25 in 2015 US News Ranking
The new U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges rankings for colleges and universities ranks North Greenville University in the top 25 schools in the South for 2015 in the category of regional colleges.
U.S. News rankings are published to offer prospective students a guide to choose the right college for them. It allows families to compare at a glance the relative quality of institutions based on such widely accepted indicators of excellence as freshman retention, graduation rates, and the strength of the faculty.
However, many factors other than those spotlighted in the rankings will figure into a college decision, including location and the feel of campus life; the range of academic offerings, activities and sports; and cost and the availability of financial aid. U.S. News figures if you combine their information with college visits, interviews, and own intuition, their rankings can be a powerful tool in your quest for the right college.
Earlier this year, leading Christian higher education resource, Christian Universities Online, ranked NGU in the number six spot in the most affordable U.S. Christian colleges and universities for 2014 rankings with an average net price of $14,954 per year. NGU was the only college in South Carolina to make the top ten.
This ranking, which was limited to schools with over 1000 students and either accredited by the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS) or a member or affiliate of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU), considered the average net price of attending each institution, as reported by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).
According to the NCES website, "Average net price is generated 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, and the weighted average for room and board and other expenses."
