    Point Loma is definitely quite pricey, but I love it here. There are scholarship opportunities that cover a lot of the cost. I think that Loma is definitely worth the money because of the quality of education I am receiving and the myriad of opportunities that I am offered both on and off campus.

    The school is a bit expensive, but there are tons of scholarships. In my opinion, it's hard to beat the PLNU experience, even if it can be a stretch financially for some. They offer tons of services included in tuition, including but not limited to free shuttle services, tutoring, therapy, sessions with a dietitian, and career counseling. I'm willing to pay student loans for years because I know this school is shaping me to be a better person and to achieve the career of my dreams.

    Point Loma provides sufficient financial aid to those who need it and abundant scholarship opportunities for those who want it. While it may appear pricey, Point Loma is a private school and the connections made with the students, staff, and alumni are completely worth the tuition.
