About Limestone University


Limestone enrolls 1,194 students on our campus, which is nestled among gently rolling hills in a historic section of Gaffney, SC. Our students experience a small, friendly, caring campus, where they are known as individuals, not as numbers. They are challenged by well-educated and dedicated faculty, who genuinely care for the individual student. Beyond the classroom, our students participate in a wide variety of clubs, organizations, and 25 NCAA Division II intercollegiate sports.

What Students Pay

Use Our Net Price Calculator   An institution's Net Price Calculator provides an individualized estimate of the net price of attendance for a first-time, full-time aided undergraduate at that institution. The federal definition of net price is as follows: an institution's cost of attendance for first-time, full-time undergraduate students less the total need- and merit-based federal, state and institutional grant aid awarded (i.e., monetary awards that do not have to be paid back) divided by the number of first-time, full-time undergraduate students receiving such aid. The estimates generated by an institution's Net Price Calculator do not represent a final determination, or actual award, of financial assistance or a final net price; they are only estimates.

Undergraduate or graduate student teaching assistants are not included as faculty.

Instructional faculty is defined as those members of the instructional-research staff whose major regular assignment is instruction, including those with released time for research.
