LAKERS TOGETHER: Grand Valley is preparing for successful learning experiences when classes resume on Aug. 31. Learn more about the plan for fall in this handbook.
The latest tuition rates can be viewed on the Grand Valley website under Financial Aid Cost of Attendance. Payment methods include: cash, credit card, demand draft, travelers checks or Western Union Business Solutions. Students must pay by the official deadline dates found on the website. First semester international students do not follow these payment deadline dates, as their tuition payment deadline will be the Friday before classes begin. If you are a first semester student, you will continue receiving emails regarding payment for your classes; however, you may disregard these emails since your classes will be held for you by the International Center. You can view your specific Grand Valley billing account through myBanner.
Grand Valley State University requires all first semester international students to pay tuition, fees and on campus housing in full by the Friday before classes begin. You may view your specific Grand Valley billing account through myBanner. Please make arrangements to pay your bill in full no later than 5:00 p.m. E.S.T./E.D.T, the Friday before classes begin. No payment plans will be available for your first semester at GVSU.
International students on an F-1 or J-1 visa are required by law to provide evidence of financial support sufficient to cover the cost of tuition and living expenses for their degree program. The expectation is that the student will be financially capable of paying tuition and living in the U.S. on the funds demonstrated.
Grand Valley State University has partnered with Western Union Business Solutions to provide international students and their families a fast, easy, and affordable way to pay education costs online and in their own currency. This service allows you to pay locally from your home bank, saving you money on exchange rates and bank fees. Funds are credited directly to your bursar account in dollars in as few as two (2) business days.
