GCU's annual tuition rates will remain at $16,500 for all current and incoming students—a figure that has remained constant since 2009. Most GCU students pay far less for tuition, thanks to extensive academic, athletic and transfer scholarships. With these scholarships, the average GCU student pays $7,800 per year in tuition—a figure comparable to public state universities and well below other private universities.
"We have made it a point to keep our tuition costs affordable while providing a private, high-quality, Christian education," said Brian Mueller, president and CEO at Grand Canyon University. "These measures allow more students the opportunity to receive a college education, both on our vibrant ground campus and in our engaging online academic programs."
