Estimated Cost of Attendance

Each year the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships determines a budget/cost of attendance that projects an estimated average costs for tuition, fees, housing and dining, books, and other expenses. Budgets are used to represent student differences with regards to residency, enrollment and academic level. These budgets are based on full-time enrollment, and are adjusted at census each semester.

Actual tuition costs for the 2020-2021 academic can be found here: www.gvsu.edu/tuition

Your financial aid budget also acts as the maximum amount of financial aid you can utilize for the academic year.  If your overall actual out of pocket educational expenses exceed the amount listed in your budget on myBanner, please contact us.
