Oakland City University Ranked Among 20 Best Affordable Schools in Indiana for bachelor’s degree

Oakland City University has been ranked among the 20 best affordable schools in Indiana for a bachelor's degree by Affordable Schools. Oakland City University was ranked 12th.  The ranking was published on the organization's website in August.

This ranking was created using the National Center for Education Statistics' College Navigator database and each school's website. The top 20 universities and colleges in Indiana were selected and ranked based on average cost of attendance, student-to-faculty ratio, and graduation rate.

Located in Oakland City, Ind., Oakland City University is the only General Baptist Church-affiliated institution of higher learning in the country. Founded in 1885.  OCU currently enrolls approximately 2,350 undergraduate and graduate students. The school places a strong emphasis on Christian values, service, and faith. While various worship activities, Bible study groups, an on-campus minister, and chapel services help to promote a Christian environment, students of all religious backgrounds are invited to attend.

"Oakland City University as a Christ-centered institution strives for academic excellence and offers high-quality, career-focused degree programs," says Dr. Ron Dempsey, OCU President. "We are thrilled to be included in this ranking of the 20 best affordable schools in Indiana for a bachelor's degree."

OCU offers several undergraduate and graduate programs through its five schools in the areas of professional studies, religious studies, education, business, and the arts and sciences.
