Grand Valley State University's Grand Finish grant is available to first-time and transfer college students who complete 90 credit hours within three years of enrollment at GVSU.
Prepare for a Grand Finish
The less time you spend in college, the less money you will spend on your degree. Let Grand Valley State University help you have a Grand Finish!
Here is our promise. When you complete 90 GVSU credit hours within three years of initial enrollment, we will award you $1,000 over your next two semesters of study. It's our early graduation gift. Dual enrollment, advanced placement, and international baccalaureate credits earned prior to your first semester at Grand Valley count toward the 90-hour requirement, speeding your time to graduation.
The grant is available to transfer students, too. You will be awarded $500 grant once you've earned 90 eligible credit hours, with an average of 30 credit hours per year at Grand Valley in the year(s) following your transfer.
There is no need to apply for the Grand Finish grant. Once you have earned the eligible credits, the grant will be automatically added to your financial aid award the following semester(s).
