Costs

As tuition has steadily increased at many colleges and universities around the country, California Baptist University has chosen to hold the line as much as possible. As a result, our costs remain lower than a significant number of private schools. At CBU, we believe a college education should be affordable, and by keeping tuition costs as low as possible while enabling graduate students to secure generous financial aid, we’ve remained within reach of many public institutions of higher education. Today, more and more students are able to enjoy the quality education provided at California Baptist University. That’s a legacy we’re proud of.
