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. Unlike those schools, GCU has maintained their tuition rates since 2009 to keep their students as their top priority. Tuition is the same for in-state, out-of-state and international students, allowing all kinds of students to earn their degrees with GCU.
