    Relative to other Private and Christian Colleges Sterling is one of the most inexpensive, but with that said it is more expensive than your state schools and jucos. It is going to be what you put in, if you mess around and just get by you're not going to get as much value as you would like. Something that you should keep in mind is the the value of a Christian College and the value of resources you have a Sterling.

    This campus is filled with a whole bunch of fun, but also being at a small Christian college it gets a little expensive, but the academics staff here always helps you find ways that you can help pay for school or can figure out a payment plan that fits your needs.
