“Our rigorous academics, combined with a caring and supportive faculty and staff, create an environment that fosters long-term excellence and student success,” said Matthew Roberts, Ed.D., provost of King. “We work very hard to make a private, Christian education available at the same or lesser cost than a public university, and are grateful that the Princeton Review has included us among those institutions they consider the best in our region.”

Each year, King University awards approximately $19 million in aid to students, with an average financial award of $17,520.
