    I feel like they're very fair for a private school. All the other Christian private schools I've looked into are $15,000 + a year after scholarships and grants (this coming from a girl who's EFC was 0 and thought the government would give her enough money to cover everything. NOPE!) but Harding is $8,000 for the first year with those of an EFC of 0. It goes up the more EFC you have, and each year you are here it costs more especially if you don't keep your GPA at a 3.5. I'm paying $9,500 this year, and I'm having to take loans but I promise it's worth it. Be sure to bring bags of quarters though...because the washers and dryers cost extra.

    Overall, Harding is a great school. It is expensive, and there are things that they could improve on, but Harding has great teachers, nice facilities, and is an overall positive campus to be on.

    I am a non-resident student paying out of state tuition at a private Christian university and the cost is only $2000 more a year than if I had attended a state-supported school in my home state.
