Campbellsville University President Michael V. Carter said, "We are very excited about this ranking. Coupled with Campbellsville University graduates having the lowest student debt among Kentucky colleges, except for Alice Lloyd and Berea, this validates the dedication of CU faculty, staff and coaches who put students first every day.
"We strive for innovative programs in small class sizes at the most competitive prices," he said.
Dave Walters: Further recognition of how CU provides individualized financial packages
Dave Walters, vice president for admissions and student services, said, "Affordability is an important consideration for students as they make a choice of where to attend. Being ranked as the fourth most affordable Christian university in America is further recognition of how hard we work at Campbellsville University to provide each of our students with an individualized and maximized financial aid package.
"Coupled with the low student debt that our graduates have, as recognized statewide and nationally as well, CU is really becoming known as one of the most affordable Christian universities of excellence in the nation. We are very pleased with this latest recognition."
