Tuition and Aid

The Cost of Doing Business

It just about goes without saying that higher education is not cheap! Between buying books, covering tuition, and paying for rent and food, a student could go mad (and broke) trying to stay out in front of the expenses. That’s just while a student is in school; for many there’s years of student loan payments to follow graduation.

A Different Approach

At Great Northern University, we think your education should equip you for your future without saddling you with years of debt. If you have already taken a deeper look at GNU, you have seen that we have taken great care to develop academic programs that put you first; our approach to your educational finances has been the same. We think that if you graduate from GNU and are unable to pursue your calling because of the need to repay massive student loans, then we’ve done something wrong. 

Tuition Price Lock

At Great Northern University, your tuition rate (cost per credit) will be locked in from the moment you enroll until you graduate, as long as you are actively enrolled as a full-time student (conditions apply). Our goal with this is to give you peace of mind that your tuition rates are not suddenly going to balloon after the first year or two. 

The Bottom Line

There is no other way to say it: we have deliberately chosen to keep our cost as affordable as possible, because we don’t believe that finances should prevent someone from receiving the education they want. The rates listed below are for Great Northern University’s 2018-2019 academic year.
