Masters and Doctoral Degree Programs

Due to COVID-19 we have extended some of our admissions deadlines and altered some of our admissions requirements. Please contact the Graduate Program Director if you have questions.


Position Yourself for What's Next

The world is changing in unprecedented ways. Current jobs are evolving. New ones are being born of opportunity and necessity. You may want to increase your post-baccalaureate education to meet the changing professional challenges. When you do, Grand Valley will be here to help.  

Grand Valley offers a variety of master’s and doctoral degree programs, numerous combined bachelor’s/master’s degree programs. Combined bachelor’s/master’s degree programs allow you to complete both degrees sooner by allowing graduate credits to count towards undergraduate graduation. Grand Valley also has a robust offering of graduate certificate programs to help you further your professional studies.

Grand Valley State University does not charge out-of-state or international tuition rates for master’s or doctoral degree classes. Tuition is based on the program in which you chose to enroll. Visit the Office of Financial Aid for tuition and fees. The Laker Lifetime Learning (L3) account is available for alumni to use for future classes at GVSU.
