Calculate Your Tuition at Lubbock Christian University
Written by The LCU Blogging Team on Tuesday, December 12th, 2017 in my LCU
As you finalize your decision to attend Lubbock Christian University, either as a first-year student or as a transfer, it’s time to take a longer look at the costs of attending college.
Many factors come into play when determining your final tuition costs – not just at LCU, but at every university. Here’s a glance at what your final tuition costs may be at LCU, as well as relevant scholarships, and the non-dollar add-on value of attending a small, private university.
Tuition is what you pay for the classes you take. LCU uses block rate tuition which means if you’re a full-time student taking 12-18 hours, you pay the same cost each semester.
Let’s look more closely at tuition costs at LCU:
- Undergraduate tuition rates for the 2018-19 fall and spring school year at LCU were $11,120 per semester. That comes out to $22,240 in standard tuition costs.
- Remember, there are other costs: books, housing, supplies, meals, health fees, etc. In 2016-2017, for example, the estimated annual cost for books and supplies was $1,200.
- On-campus room and board will cost an average of $6,650 per student in the 2018-19 academic year for a shared room, $7,710 for a private room.
- You should also budget money for additional living expenses. If you’re living on campus, the suggested budget for additional living expenses is $4,798.
First-year students at LCU may be awarded academic scholarships based on their ACT and SAT scores. LCU awards scholarships to transfer students based on grade point average. Some of the scholarships include:
Honors scholarship – For full-time beginning freshmen; dependent on ACT and SAT scores.
Home school graduate scholarships – For freshmen who graduated from a homeschool program.
Christian school graduate – For students who graduated from a private Christian school.
Christian School/Academy Discount – For full-time students whose parent works full-time at a Christian school or academy.
National Merit Scholarship – This scholarship is determined by the National Merit Corporation and awarded in the spring of a student’s senior year of high school.
As you calculate your overall cost of your university, be sure to consider the overall value with that cost, i.e., benefits that aren’t or can’t be measurable by dollar value alone. At LCU, intangible value add-ons include a smaller class size (a 12 to 1 student to faculty ratio), research opportunities (66 undergraduate majors), and a close-knit Christian community of fewer than 1,500 undergraduate students.
