ecsu-ranked-1-by-best-va 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.
