Graduate School Named in Top 50 Best Christian Graduate Schools for 2017

Tigerville SC (October 17, 2016) North Greenville University ranks 21 in the Top 50 Best Christian Graduate Schools for 2017 by Christian Universities Online (CUO). This ranking highlights Christian graduate schools that excel in categories of personal attention to their students, selectivity, readily available financial aid, and overall student satisfaction.

CUO says the decision to continue your formal education has great impact on a life.  Often, graduate school will consume more time and energy than initially anticipated.  While the future benefit may be a more lucrative income or increased respect from peers and scholars, there is no doubt that the Graduate School career has obstacles.  

In order to help with the decision-making process, CUO has published their top 50 ranking of Christian Graduate School in the U.S. for the 2016-2017 academic year.  CUO strives to be the go-to and trusted resource for students and their parents in deciding which school to attend. CUO understands how important a decision this is and offers this ranking as a great starting point.

According to CUO, they give the disclaimer that publicly available data for Christian graduate schools is severely lacking.  Their aim in future rankings of graduate schools is to improve upon the number of data points by collecting them directly from each of the eligible institutions.  The methodology for this ranking began by collecting all members or member eligible schools of the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU) that offer graduate degree programs.  They then collected data for two categories, number of graduate degree programs and average graduate student tuition and fees for an academic year.  Both of these data points were collected from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) site, College Navigator.
