Member College Profile
Grand View University hosts 2,200 students in the heart of the vibrant city of Des Moines, Iowa, a metro area of more than half a million people that offers strong internships and all the amenities of city life.
Students study in 40 undergraduate majors and four graduate programs, participate in 24 sports – including national championship teams in football and wrestling – and live in some of newest residential facilities in the state. With an average class size of 17 and a student to faculty ratio of 14:1, GV professors provide personal attention and create strong relationships with students.
Grand View is among the most affordable universities in the Midwest. If fact, many students find that the cost of Grand View is comparable to a state university. After grants and scholarships, 77% of the most recent full-time, residential GV freshman class paid tuition, fees, and room & board that were comparable to or less than the published in-state prices at Iowa’s public universities. The average financial assistance package for new first year GV students exceeds $22,800.
What's more, Grand View's whole-degree planning and financing plan helps students reduce costs further, borrow less, and stay on track to graduate in four years.
