North Greenville University is a private liberal arts institution affiliated with the South Carolina Baptist Convention and recognized as one of the most notable conservative Christian universities in the Southeast and even the nation.
At the heart of NGU is a Christ-centered community of genuine, caring faculty and staff members who are committed to providing every student with not only a quality educational experience, but also hands-on opportunities for spiritual growth and service on campus, in the local community, and around the world.
NGU features more than 50 undergraduate, online undergraduate, and graduate degree options, and students can complete their coursework at NGU’s main campus in Tigerville, S.C.; its sister campus in Greer, S.C.; or completely online.
Our main campus is located at the foothills of the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains in northern Greenville County, S.C. — less than 20 miles north of the award-winning city of Greenville, which both Livability.com and U.S. News and World Report have called a best place to live in the U.S.
NGU itself has also received substantial national recognition year after year. For example, “Forbes” has named NGU one of America’s top colleges. And Christian Universities Online calls NGU one of the best Christian universities in the South.

“There’s a difference here.”
We hear comments like this all the time on North Greenville University’s campus. And in this case, different is good.
At NGU, our motto is “Christ Makes the Difference.” We believe it to be true. You feel the spirit in the air, see it in the smiles, and hear it in the greetings of people you meet on campus.
But this beautiful campus, which boasts one of the best rural settings in the nation, is more than a well-renowned university where students are prepared for successful careers. It’s a place where new generations of servant-leaders are being trained and transformed to bring real hope and change to the world.
We hope you’ll come experience NGU for yourself.
