    Hope is expensive, but one of the least expensive private Christian universities that you will find in Southern California. The education and experience is well worth it!

    HIU is the cheapest Christian college in Southern California and if you choose to really embrace this community, the price is definitely worth it.

    Hope International University is actually very expensive; I wouldn't honestly say I'm getting the best deal for my buck. At 24,000 $ a year; I'd say it's a little bit of a gyp; but which private college isn't?
