On-Campus Tuition

Campus Tuition Rates 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 only pays $9,2001 in annual tuition with the help of institutional scholarships, lowering the cost by almost half. Speak with your university counselor for more information about estimating the costs of attending GCU.

GCU made it very convenient and affordable for me to go to a great university.
