East Texas Baptist University has been recognized as one of the "50 Most Affordable Christian Colleges in the U.S." 

The website, Christian Universities Online, ranked ETBU at 35. 

ETBU Vice President for Enrollment Management and Marketing Vince Blankenship said, "ETBU has always worked hard to keep cost affordable for our students. That commitment is reflected in the more $9 million in ETBU aid that is awarded." 

The website posted "East Texas Baptist University is a private, liberal arts university affiliated with the Baptist General Convention of Texas. 
Students can choose from over 38 undergraduate majors and four graduate majors.   Undergraduate majors cover a very wide range of fields such as criminal justice, kinesiology and elementary education to give only a few of them. 

Christian Universities Online reports that the colleges on the Top 50 list had to be accredited by the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools or a member/affiliate of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities.  The website ranked the 50 schools by average net price data put out by the National Center for Education Statistics.

The average net price to attend ETBU was $18,235.  For the upcoming academic year ETBU will award over $9 million in financial aid to students and over 99% will receive financial aid.
