Tuition Costs

The Financial Aid Office at Grace desires to help students and their families gain access to several financial aid sources so that each student will have an opportunity to be a part of the Grace experience.

2021-2022 On Campus Tuition

ON CAMPUS TUITION RATE = $745 per credit hour ($730 Tuition + $15 fees*)
* Library, Activity, and Technology

A student is considered full-time when they enroll in 12 or more credit hours per semester.

Room & Board / Meal Plan Options

Residential Students

Flexible meal plans offer students creative options to accommodate financial needs while providing meals from our wonderful dining hall. Rather than purchasing meals weekly, the meal plan cost is per semester. Students are able to choose how many meals they eat in a given week and can adjust as needed based on their remaining quantity.

Freshman or transfer students residing in our dormitory housing are strongly encouraged to choose the 225 meal plan for their first semester. This plan averages 15 meals a week. We suggest this plan, or higher, as our dormitory housing does not offer a full access kitchen. Students in dormitory housing may select as low as the 90 meal plan.

Commuter Students

Traditional undergraduate students commuting to campus may also choose from a variety of meal plans. These plans are also purchased per semester, allowing the option to increase or decrease based on the remaining quantity.
