Many students think they cannot afford CBU before taking a close look at the true cost of attending. In fact, 89 percent of CBU students receive some form of financial aid. Plus, CBU students typically earn their degrees in less time than is common at larger schools. Use CBU's Price Calculator to get a clear view of your cost and financial aid options.
