PHOENIX — An education at Grand Canyon University is one thing that’s been immune to inflation over the years.

The four-year private Christian college in Phoenix announced Tuesday that it is freezing tuition for the 15th consecutive year in 2023-24.

“In challenging times with high inflation, it’s important to know that your tuition costs will not be rising every year,” GCU President Brian Mueller said in a press release.

While tuition has remained at $16,500 per year since 2008, in-person enrollment for the campus at 35th Avenue and Camelback has grown from about 1,000 to 25,000. GCU also has an online program with about 90,000 students.

With over 90% of GCU students qualifying for $180 million in institutional scholarships, the average tuition for the current school year is $9,200, according to the release.

“GCU is committed to making higher education affordable to all socioeconomic classes, and freezing tuition is one example of how we do that,” Mueller said.

“As a result, our students take on significantly less debt than the average for students at state universities and pay back their loans at higher rates than the national average.”
