The ranking, which was limited to schools with over 1000 students and either accredited by the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS) or a member or affiliate of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU), considered the average net price of attending each institution, as reported by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). According to the NCES website, "Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state/local government, or institutional grant or scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees, books and supplies, and the weighted average for room and board and other expenses."

Average net price is a more accurate measurement of a college's actual affordability than just tuition cost, said Michael Templeton, lead editor for the ranking. "Many Christian universities and colleges have very aggressive financial aid packages and have other unique sources of support that reduce what may be very expensive tuition costs to a more manageable level for lots of students." According to Templeton, "We believe this ranking will help Christian students and their families navigate the true cost of attending these schools and find one that fits both their heart and their wallet."
