#7 of 50 Colleges/Universities with the lowest student debt


  • Schools were ranked according to students’ average total debt upon graduation.
  • All 4-year institutions (online, private, public, for-profit) were considered, except for specialty institutions.
  • Data is from the 2013-2014 school year.

Beginning in 2007, Barclay College started to offer full-tuition coverage for full-time students living in dormitory halls. Hence, why Barclay graduates have very little debt to worry about. Compared to students at other 4-year private universities in Kansas, Barclay students graduate with less than 1/3 of the debt. Financial aid is plentiful: 92% of students apply for assistance in some form, and 72% of students’ needs are fully met. Further, 57% of Barclay undergrads receive Pell Grants averaging to $4,191. While the just-shy-of-$1-million endowment may seem small, consider that the school graduated only 125 students in 2008. The dividends suddenly appear more appetizing. Work-study programs also help keep costs down, and students earn back a total of $50,631 per year. While originally a school for ministry, Barclay has expanded to offer excellent programs in Psychology and Family Studies, Business Administration, Elementary Education, and more. Associate and graduate degrees are also available. [source]
