We are proud that at nearly half the price of our competitors, LPU is the most affordable private, regionally accredited, Christian university in California. We are committed to empower students with a high quality, affordable education. Higher education is a significant investment - tuition and related costs should be considered well in advance of enrollment. All educational expenses will be the responsibility of the student and a schedule of costs is available prior to each new school year. This information will be distributed to students and parents to ensure that proper financial preparation may be made for the upcoming year.
