Life Pacific College in Top 5 Most Affordable Private California Schools

Life Pacific College (LPC) is one of the lowest priced regionally accredited private, 4-year institutions of higher education in California. This is according to a June 28, 2013 release of data from the College Affordability and Transparency Center of the US Department of Education. The department's latest information shows LPC's tuition is #5 out of 63 California schools listed in both tuition and the net cost of education. In addition, LPC is the second least expensive faith-based college and third in net costs overall in this group.

"With tuition costs of about 40% of the California average, LPC offers a great value for families facing tough economic times," says college president, Dr. Jim J. Adams. "Our attractive campus, comfortable residence halls, and engaging professors provide an exceptional experience for students looking for a faith-based education in a smaller setting."

Life Pacific College will launch five new BA concentrations this fall which include: Counseling, Intercultural Studies, Worship Arts, Youth Ministry, and Pastoral Ministry. In addition, the college is developing exciting new majors in Human Development & Psychology and Business Administration ready for fall 2014. Both will include 30 units of Bible and theology and biblical integration across the curriculum. Academic Dean, Dr. Michael Salmeier affirms, "LPC is excited for the opportunity to apply its 90-year tradition of quality biblical education in helping our graduates prepare to serve Christ in new fields."

"LPC is taking bold steps to offer our students a variety of programs that set our college apart," says Board Chairman, Dr. Sam Rockwell, "not only with a unique blend of complementary concentrations and majors, but with affordability and accessibility."
