Can I Afford a Private Christian University?

The answer is different for every family, but we work to make sure the answer is, “yes” for as many students as possible. Here’s how we strive for affordability:

We Start Low And Aim High

NU’s total cost is significantly lower than other private universities in the area. But our accreditation and academic standards are high. It’s why we were recently selected as a College of Distinction and have been rated as an exceptional value.
