GVSU board sets tuition and housing rates for 2024-2025 academic year

University leadership says that GVSU’s residential undergraduate expenses remain in the bottom quarter among Michigan public universities

Grand Valley State University’s Board of Trustees approved a 3.5% tuition increase and is raising the cost of housing and dining by 5.2%. University leadership says that even with the increases, among Michigan public universities, GVSU’s residential undergraduate expenses remain in the bottom quarter.

Grand Valley State University President Philomena V. Mantella expressed the importance of being one of the first universities in the state to set the new rates.

Mantella pointing to nationwide student aid delays associated with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid of FAFSA program. She added students and parents rely on cost certainty:

“This is especially vital right now with the challenges around FAFSA and we are proud that our Financial Aid Team is dedicated to helping families through this stressful time.”

Coming this fall, Grand Valley’s new College of Computing will open its doors and with it a new undergraduate data science and analytics program approved by trustees.
