GCU freezes tuition for seventh straight year

February 05, 2015 / by / 0 Comment

PHOENIX (Feb. 4, 2015) – Grand Canyon University has announced that tuition for the 2015-16 school year will remain the same on its west Phoenix campus – the seventh straight year it has frozen tuition. Tuition will remain at $16,500 per year for current and incoming students, a figure that has not changed since 2009. However, more than 90 percent of students receive institutional scholarships that drastically reduce that cost. In the fall of 2014, students paid an average of $7,900 after scholarships – a figure that is on par with state universities and well below other private universities. That total does not include federal aid such as Pell grants and subsidized student loans, which lowers students’ out-of-pocket expenses further to an average of $3,489 per year. GCU’s room and board costs, which start at $6,050 per year, are also well below the national average. According to the College Board, the average cost of room and board in 2013–2014 ranged from $9,500 at four-year public schools to $10,830 at private schools. “Keeping tuition affordable is the utmost priority for us,” said Brian Mueller, GCU’s president/CEO. “We have experienced a lot of growth and invested hundreds of millions of dollars into […]
