    Lee University is quite possibly the cheapest private school you'll ever find.

    Lee is pretty darn cheap, considering it's a private school. As of Spring 2015, it's $6,840 a semester. ($570/credit). The maximum credit load before having to pay extra is 16 hours and you need 120 hours to graduate. It actually ended up being cheaper for me than going to one of the in-state public universities. Lee gives a lot of good scholarships, both for sports and academics. The quality of education is also very good, in my opinion. Going to will help you choose teachers that teach well but aren't hard and it will allow to avoid any teacher that may not be a good teacher. The housing a meal plans are overpriced, but that pretty much happens at every school. I really have learned a lot in my major courses and feel like it was worth it to come here. It's nice because it's not too small, yet it's not too big. When walking around campus, it is not unusual to see a lot of people you don't know but it's also not unusual to see a good amount of people that you do know.

    Lee has so much to offer, and at such a great price! Many private colleges have tuition and room/board prices much higher than Lee's.

    Although the price is high due to it being a private Christian school, the education is truly worth it because the teachers work so hard to make sure your money is not being wasted. They really truly do care about the students and are aware of how much the students are paying.
