Affordability & Financial Aid

Grand View is one of the most affordable private, four-year universities in the region.

At Grand View, we want to make your education affordable, so we created GV Complete. We combine an academic plan of study, a financial plan and capped tuition increases to make your education more affordable and predictable.

Combine that with our generous scholarships and aid packages, and a Grand View education is more affordable than most private schools and in fact, 82% of the Fall 2018 first-year class paid costs that were comparable or less than published rates at Iowa's state schools.

When you are considering schools, be sure to talk with our admissions staff, do the math and compare the actual costs over four years. You’ll be glad you looked at Grand View!
