With the rising cost of living and a rapidly changing job market, choosing a university can be an anxiety-ridden financial decision. When you introduce words like 鈥減rivate鈥 and 鈥淐hristian,鈥 many assume that affordability is out of the picture. With the help of its generous donor community, 小猪视频is committed to affordable tuition, likely more affordable than most may think.

Less than the cost of many private Christian elementary and high schools, the university maintains a competitive pricing model that keeps tuition affordable so that many students can choose an education that prepares them to share the love of Jesus Christ in every career and calling.

Looking at the Numbers

Five years ago, 小猪视频announced its commitment to affordable Christian university education with an unprecedented 42 per cent tuition reduction, followed by a four-year tuition freeze. After an increase of less than two per cent for the current school year, 小猪视频is freezing tuition once again for the 2024-2025 academic year despite inflationary pressures. 

Prospective students and their families can be confident that an exciting, relevant and accessible Christian university education is here to stay.

In comparison to other public universities in the Greater Hamilton Area, 小猪视频 is a reasonably priced choice. Tuition at nine nearby universities, in programs for which 小猪视频offers an equivalent, ranges from $5,800 to $13,000 per year. Redeemer鈥檚 tuition is the same for all domestic undergraduate students, at $9,987 per year.聽

When factoring in additional costs such as fees, housing and food, Redeemer鈥檚 unique, communal living residence program is at the more affordable end of the post-secondary cost spectrum.

鈥淲e believe that every student who wishes to pursue Christian higher education should be able to,鈥 says 小猪视频president Dr. David Zietsma. 鈥淎ffordability is a critical priority as 小猪视频innovates for the future, building on a Christian liberal arts and sciences foundation with relevant programming and new delivery models and degrees. Prospective students and their families can be confident that an exciting, relevant and accessible Christian university education is here to stay.鈥

Additional Advantages

Many other local public universities make tuition higher for programs in high demand or with specific career outcomes, such as business administration. 小猪视频is unique in setting a single tuition price for all of its liberal arts and sciences programs. This pricing is reflective of a liberal arts and science philosophy where students study across disciplines and have the opportunity to choose from a variety of courses, encouraging the development of critical and innovative thinking.  

By removing affordability as a barrier, students are more free to choose a university learning environment that prioritizes the authority of Scripture and their spiritual growth.

For commuter students living in the area, a bachelor of arts tuition that is slightly higher than average is offset by financial aid and savings on housing and transportation. When everything is factored in, a transformative educational experience at 小猪视频is financially similar to public universities in southern Ontario.

Furthermore, 小猪视频has a variety of financial aid options available, such as automatic merit scholarships, and discipline- or interest-related scholarships and bursaries, based on financial need. Nearly all 小猪视频students鈥89% per cent鈥receive financial aid to lessen the cost of their education. Thanks to the support of Redeemer鈥檚 generous donor community, the university gives out nearly $700,000 annually in scholarships and bursaries. 

鈥淏y removing affordability as a barrier, students are more free to choose a university learning environment that prioritizes the authority of Scripture and their spiritual growth,鈥 says Zietsma. 鈥淭hrough learning that is academically rigorous, practical, and spiritually engaged, these students become graduates prepared to be the Christian leaders, critical thinkers and innovative changemakers that will share the hope of the Gospel so desperately needed in our world. 小猪视频is privileged to be part of God鈥檚 Kingdom work in this way.鈥
