Grand View Scholarships and Grants

Types of Financial Aid

Following is a summary of the aid programs available at Grand View. Priority consideration for need-based aid is given to students who filed a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the March 1 priority deadline. Aid is awarded on a funds-available basis to students who filed their application after March 1.

Grand View Scholarships and Grants
Full-time undergraduate students who are charged the full-time day tuition rate may be eligible for Grand View awarded aid. Grand View awarded aid is available to students for eight semesters (transfer students’ eligibility will be prorated based on hours transferred into Grand View). Financial aid beyond eight semesters is generally limited to federal and state assistance with Grand View funded aid awarded on a funds-available basis. Institutional funds are only awarded for the Fall and Spring Semesters.

Grand View recognizes students who have compiled outstanding academic records of scholastic achievement, displayed exceptional leadership qualities, and/or developed remarkable talents. These institutional awards include academic awards, departmental awards, fine arts scholarships, and athletic awards. Grand View also offers institutional grants that are based on financial need as determined by the FAFSA. Some scholarships and grants offered by the University may be contingent on the maintenance of a specific grade point or other benchmarks specified by the particular award (see table below). Please note: some awards may be reduced if you decide to move off campus. Please contact the Financial Aid Office for more information.
