What is GCU’s Cal Grant Match Program?

California students interested in attending Grand Canyon University will be glad to learn that we offer a Cal Grant Match Program, which is available to students who qualify for California Grant A funds and choose to attend our beautiful campus in the heart of Phoenix.

GCU has no out-of-state tuition rates and offers affordable room and board packages, making it an ideal choice for students who want a private, Christian education. Also, we are not impacted by class availability, and 94% of our campus students who graduated in the 2015-16 academic year did so in less than 4 years.

To qualify for the GCU-funded Cal Grant A Match program, recipients must meet our minimum admissions requirements and be new to GCU. Also, the Cal Grant A Match cannot be combined with any other GCU scholarship, so recipients must not already qualify for a larger amount of a GCU-funded scholarship.

One of Grand Canyon University’s admissions counselors can determine if you would benefit more from the Cal Grant A Match program or the current scholarship award offered to you. To determine which is right for you, your counselor will first review your scholarship eligibility for GCU’s incoming class and then establish if you are eligible for any other GCU-funded scholarships. Next, the value presented in the Cal Grant A letter will be compared to the total amount of the GCU-funded aid that you qualify for. GCU will award you the greater value of the two options. As long as you maintain or exceed the minimum required GCU GPA, all rewards can be renewed.

At Grand Canyon University, we offer generous scholarship opportunities to make it affordable for students to fund a private, Christian education. For details, visit our website or click the Request More Information button on this page.
