Grand Canyon University Freezes Tuition Hike for 11th Consecutive Year


The Grand Canyon University which earlier this year transited back to non-profit status is not increasing tuition for the new incoming students for the 11th consecutive year.

The university announced on Tuesday its plan to freeze tuition costs at $16,500 for existing and incoming students on its west Phoenix campus. On top of it, the university is already proving scholarships to more than 90 percent of its students bringing down the tuition cost further below $8,800.

The university is further building single-occupancy apartment-style residence halls whose costs will be far below the national average of $11,140 for public four-year schools and $12,680 for private four-year universities. It is further constructing new classrooms, new dining and parking garage for the students.

“A big reason we reverted back to our nonprofit status was because, long-term, it will benefit students and families by making it easier to continue to hold the line on tuition costs,” President Brian Mueller said.

“We have been blessed to be able to do that for the past 10 years because of our very innovative approach to higher education, and we hope this enables us to continue that trend for the next 10 years.”

In last one decade, the university has made investments of more than $1 billion in building new athletics facilities, laboratories, classrooms and residence halls without making any hike in tuition fee.
