Grand Valley made it easier for prospective students and families to determine the cost of attending by adding an easy-to-use, online net-cost calculator.
B. Donta Truss, vice president for Enrollment Development and Educational Outreach, said the Cost Calculator demonstrates Grand Valley's commitment to financial transparency. It will show – in less than 5 minutes – the university's tremendous value, he added.
"For years, we have talked about how cost-effective a Grand Valley education is, and this tool will prove it," Truss said.
GVSU's Cost Calculator prompts users with a series of questions about residency, family status and income, student income and enrollment status. Seconds later, a page appears displaying a student's estimated net cost, housing and meals, books and supplies.
