GCU On-Campus Student Tuition Rates

As part of our commitment to keeping tuition rates affordable, GCU's on-campus tuition costs have remained frozen since 2009. This tuition freeze stems from our belief in the importance of a quality, attainable education for all. While the cost per credits are listed below, the average campus student pays only $8,600 per year* in tuition after institutional scholarships and grants. Speak with your university counselor for more information about estimating the costs of attending GCU.
