  • Oct-26-2013 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    Not worth the money from what I saw, their programs aren't even developed.

    HBU seems very expensive. But financial aid is given based on the cost of the school and your need. It is not outrageous in this aspect..

    Houston Baptist University is a private Christian university and is therefore quite expensive. I don't think that it should cost as much as it does to go here, but if you come in as a Freshman they give GREAT scholarships! It is definitely manageable and overall it is a fantastic school.

    HBU is pretty expensive, but the education and time spent here is worth it. Professors are great and so is the college life

    If you keep up with your classes, and materials, yes it is definitely bang for your buck. But that is everywhere. There is the spiritual aspect of the school and it is amazing. Although it is a baptist univeristy, they do not force it upon anyone.
