Grand Canyon University has a lot to celebrate with its transition back to its original roots of a nonprofit organization, as well as the recent decision to extend the freeze on tuition for the 11th year in a row! Tuition for the 2019-2020 school year will remain at $16,500 and students will continue to have access to private, Christian and affordable higher education.

It’s no secret that many colleges around the country raise their tuition each year.
