Christian Universities Online recently released a list of the 50 Best Value Christian Colleges and Universities of 2016.

The schools were ranked according to accreditation by the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS), Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) and Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), in addition to earned scores from best Christian college and most affordable christian college rankings.

Topping the list was the College of the Ozarks in Point Lookout, Missouri where students pay nothing for tuition. It’s clear why this made its way to no. 1. The costs for each students are usually funded by state grants, scholarships and work-study programs.

Johnson University in Knoxville, Tennessee came in second, and Milligan College in the Northeastern Mountains of Tennessee took the third spot.

Below is a list of other schools that made that list in alphabetical order. Click here for the ordered ranking.
