Pepperdine University

This university has it all: top-notch classes, abundant extracurricular activities and the most beautiful locale overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Malibu. But university students pay dearly for all the school has to offer – or do they?

The total cost of attending Pepperdine University for one year is approximately $56,872, according to Kiplinger. But don’t get hung up on that price. The article states that 75% of the student body does not pay full price. In fact, after need-based and merit aid are taken into consideration, the average Pepperdine student pays only $18,483, making Pepperdine almost 68% off.
