    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.

    The reason why Point Loma is worth coming to is because the teachers care about you which is something that you will not find at any big college campus.
