Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

4.16 Average Rating
Financially, BBC is not the most affordable. It offers good student scholarships and loans, but the prices have climbed in the 3 years I have been paying tuition. There are many fundraisers so that students will not have to face a drastic price increase each year. The quality of the buildings and classes are definitely worth the money. The food is not very good quality and it seems like a bit of a waste of money for such poor food, but other than that, it is worth it.

I am a child of a low-income, single parent family, so I have always been worried about being able to afford to further my education.
I expected this school to be out of the question to attend--although, I am thinking it is quite inexpensive compared to what debt I would be racking up in art school if I was still there.

BBC, as a school, has given me so much help with financial aid, and I am very grateful for things to work out with that. I am currently dealing with trying to have enough money saved up for next semester, which is a difficulty, but I have faith that things will work out with that.
(Also, with dealing with the financial aid department, they are incredible & easy-to-work with. I have never understood everything when it comes to numbers/money with all of that, and somehow I understand it, thanks to the department for spending however long helping me understand everything financial)

The education I am receiving, the atmosphere, the people, and the experience/importance of being in a Christian college is far more to me than worrying about whether or not I can go based on finances.

BBC is a college that looks like it is a hard college to afford, but believe it or not, most of the students who attend here are from low-come families, like myself. The financial aid office is great at helping you to find scholarships and monies that are available to help you to continue your education. The faculty and staff at BBC want you here, and they will do whatever they can to help you to keep pursuing your degree. And honestly, a lot of students ride on faith. Faith in God that if He wants them here, He will provide a way for them to attend. That doesn't mean the route is always easy, but if it is in His will, He will provide.

The thing I was most concerned about coming to BBC, was the cost. Baptist Bible College costs around $24,000 a year. I had no idea how I would pay for it all. But the Lord provided for me in so many amazing ways. I got state aid for staying in Pennsylvania, I got federal aid. I won a Christian Leadership scholarship from BBC. I also got a scholarship from BBC simply based on my GPA. I don't think anyone has to pay the full price at Baptist Bible College, They work with you. There are many campus jobs. You can also apply for federal work study. Every year BBC has an Awards chapel. This year they gave away 98 scholarships based on character and need.
