PHOENIX — Grand Canyon University announced this week that it would freeze its tuition rates for students on its west Phoenix campus for another year, marking the 11th straight year that the college has done so.

The university said in a press release that tuition for the 2019-2020 school year will remain at $16,500 for existing and incoming students.

GCU President Brian Mueller said in a statement that a big reason that the university transitioned back to nonprofit status — a two-year ordeal that was finalized in July — was to “continue to hold the line on tuition costs.

“We have been blessed to be able to do that for the past 10 years because of our very innovative approach to higher education, and we hope this enables us to continue that trend for the next 10 years,” he added.

The university announced in July that it had returned to nonprofit status, allowing more access to revenue streams for the school, including donations, grants and tax breaks.

More than 7,100 new students attended Grand Canyon University in fall 2018, a record set for the university. The total enrollment for the year was about 21,000 students.
