    They have graduate classes that are $199 per credit hour. It’s Presbyterian, and I don’t see any red flags, but wanting to find out if they come from the PCUSA angle. Thanks

    I live within ten miles of Belhaven. I know people who have worked there and are graduates. I don't have any personal experience with the college during the last twenty or twenty five years, but I know its local general reputation. Academically it is has a good reputation but not an outstanding one. Milsaps, the local Methodist University has the strongest academic reputation. Mississippi College and Belhaven are about even with MC probably being stronger now, but Belhaven was slightly stronger academically in the past. Milsaps is quite liberal. Belhaven and MC are seen as conservative, but neither of them would be considered Fundamentalist, or strongly conservative. But, when I have been on Belhaven's campus I have never seen radical liberal students or gay pride flags or anything like that.

    As a local my opinion is the School is conservative but almost all Universities today have their liberal professors and staff. It is not a liberal school, but I can't vouch for not having some modern problems like almost all other schools experience today.

    If the student is a resident of Mississippi, I would recommend they look into Mississippi College too. Lealand Speed, a local businessman has gifted MC with the ability to offer any Mississippi resident with a scholarship that pays the full tuition for any high school graduate with a GPA of 2.5 or higher. I am more familiar with MC than Belhaven and can vouch for MC being significantly more conservative than the average college. Not perfect, but far from being another liberal college that is so common today.
