Cost of Attendance

Know up front what your estimated costs are for earning your online degree at Grantham University. The Needs Analysis – or Cost of Attendance – below gives you a clear picture of what you need to budget to attend the University. This calculation is used to determine your “financial need,” which is the basis of financial aid award packages, as well as eligibility for other types of financial assistance.

Indirect and Direct Costs

Both direct and indirect costs make up the cost of attendance.

  • Direct costs are usually paid directly to the university. These include tuition, fees and books.
  • Indirect costs are additional expenses you may incur while attending school, which are not paid to the University.

Even though Grantham University is 100% online, we are permitted by federal regulations to include reasonable cost for additional expenses you may incur while attending the University.

The following budget items are included as part of the Cost of Attendance for 2017-2018:

    • Tuition
    • Books, supplies and miscellaneous fees

    • Personal expenses, including room, board, etc.
