Tuition, Fees & Financial Aid

Your Pillar College education is a transformative investment, and we’re here to help.

Why is a college education an investment?

Former Harvard University President Derek Bok once stated to syndicated columnist Ann Landers, “If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.” While a college education does teach you to write effectively, think critically, speak persuasively and solve problems (Ottley, 2016), there is also the financial aspect that should be considered.

Would you be willing to invest $22,000 per year over a four-year period on a return of $2.6 million? Or even $3.1 million? According to College Board, a Bachelor’s degree is worth about $2.6 million while a Master’s degree is worth about $3.1 million over a working career. And while greater income potential is critical, the benefits of having a college degree go well beyond finances – as Confucius once famously stated, (it helps you to) “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Choose Pillar College, and learn how you can have a better life through a Christ-centered education.
