Tuition & Fees

At Grand View University, your tuition pays for a student's instruction by knowledgeable and experienced faculty members who value our tradition of great teaching. Moreover, we are committed to providing the finest education attainable at the lowest cost possible. The cost of attendance will be published tuition and fees minus grants, scholarships, and other financial aid. Nearly all Grand View students receive financial aid, which often brings the cost of attendance to a level the same or less than the state universities (for nearly 86% of 2016 first year students).

International Students

Once you have been accepted, you will be required to pay a deposit of $1,700. $100 of this deposit will be held as a non-refundable enrollment deposit and $200 will be held as a housing deposit, while the remaining $1,400 will be applied to your first semester's charges. Grand View University will issue the I-20 only to admitted students who have paid their deposit.

  • Living expenses for international students are calculated based on living on campus, including housing and an Access 5 meal plan.
  • Personal Needs is an estimate of miscellaneous costs such as clothing, laundry, entertainment, transportation, etc.
  • Every international student in the U.S. is required to have health insurance coverage. The health insurance estimate is for 12 months of continuing coverage. You will need to prove that you have adequate health insurance in the U.S. or purchase the insurance plan offered through Grand View University. Price of health insurance coverage will range based on a variety of factors.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement requires a $200 Student Exchange Visitor Processing Fee and an I-901 form from all students who receive an I-20. Admitted students who have made the deposit of $1,700 will receive information on this fee and the I-901 form when the I-20 is issued. The fee must be paid before applying for a visa. For more information, please refer to the I-901 information sheet.
