Elizabeth City State University was recently listed as the number one institution
on the Best Value Schools website for "The 100 Most Affordable Small Colleges in America
2015." Best Value Schools ranked 100 colleges for the best value to prospective students.
To find the average out-of-pocket costs of the institutions, Best Value Schools calculated
the net price of attendance. This is determined by subtracting scholarships, government
aid, and institutional grants from the published tuition rate of the school. The list
only included schools with fewer than 4,000 students. Specialized schools, community
colleges, and graduate schools were also excluded. Elizabeth City State University
was recently named by Washington Monthly as one of the "Best Bang for the Buck" institutions.
ECSU has 28 undergraduate degree offerings and four graduate degree programs, flexible
study options, and research opportunities.
