CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. – Campbellsville University has been ranked 48th in the top 100 most affordable small colleges east of the Mississippi by Great Values Colleges.

Dr. Michael V. Carter, president of Campbellsville University, said, “We are very excited about this ranking. At Campbellsville University, providing the best scholarships, grants and other financial arrangements is of high importance.

“We understand families struggle with college expenses, and we want to make the college experience the most affordable possible. We always are working together with our students to help make Christian higher education accessible to as many people as possible.

“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.”

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 most affordable at 48th out of 100 small colleges east of the Mississippi 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.”

For the ranking, Great Values Colleges limited their selection to small schools (4,000 students or less) east of the Mississippi.

Traditional, four-year schools were only considered in the ranking. Community colleges, online colleges, graduate schools or specialty universities, such as established seminaries, were not considered.
