Malone University named to national list of 50 most affordable Christian colleges and universities
July 31, 2014 | Release # 6945
Christian Universities Online has just released their list of the "Top 50 Most Affordable Christian Colleges in the U.S.," with Canton's Malone University ranking #30 – the only Ohio college or university to make the list. The ranking organization is an online guide to Christian colleges and universities – the ranking does not refer to online programs only.
According to the CUO website:
College affordability is an idea that is more helpful to quantify than simply considering the tuition of the institution of your choice. Many universities and colleges have developed very aggressive financial aid packages and have other unique sources of funding that reduce what may be very expensive tuition costs to a more manageable level for lots of students. With that in mind, we have put together a ranking of the 50 most affordable Christian colleges in the U.S. to help students navigate the true cost of attending these schools. The colleges and universities on this list had to be accredited by the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS) or a member/affiliate of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU). The average net price data we used to build this ranking was sourced from the latest data put out by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). Lastly, in order to ensure the comparisons were as commensurable and practical as possible, we set a lower limit on the student population at 1,000, which was also referenced through the NCES.
The ranking coincides with Malone's recent rankings in the top 50 of career outcomes by Educate to Career (Malone ranked #48 nationally), and 9th best financial aid packages for online degrees by Top Degrees Online.
Malone University, a Christian university for the arts, sciences, and professions in the liberal arts tradition, affiliated with the Evangelical Friends Church, awards both undergraduate and graduate degrees in more than 100 academic programs. Malone has been recognized by the prestigious Templeton Foundation as a leader in character development, as one of Northeast Ohio’s Top Workplaces by the Cleveland Plain Dealer, is ranked among the top colleges and universities in the Midwest under the category Regional Universities according to U.S.News & World Report's America's Best Colleges 2014, has been awarded the designation Military Friendly School by Victory Media, and is named to AffordableCollegesOnline (ACO)’s Best Lifetime Return on Investment list for the State of Ohio.
