In this time of high-cost tuition and economic uncertainty, it is all the more important for colleges to show students and parents that they are getting the most for their money, said Belhaven President Dr. Roger Parrott. At Belhaven, we strive to be exceptional stewards of our resources and seek to provide a quality education at costs that are obtainable for all students. We take great pride in being named to this prestigious list, and this award affirms the tremendous value found in a degree from Belhaven University.
A Belhaven degree is affordable due to several factors. Students receive a quality education at a low cost. More than 90% the University’s students receive some form of financial aid and students will complete their degrees on time. The value of a degree from Belhaven is a long-term investment into a student’s future.
