Certainly the college is one of the most affordable, as mentioned before. (Of course, this is in comparison to universities, private colleges, and the like; community colleges are of course much more affordable.) For example, for a 12-18 credit hour block, the cost per year for tuition alone is $23,290; but per credit--not being a part of the block plan that saves money--is $775. The college also offers online summer courses at a huge discount for those students who were enrolled full-time before: It's free! (All the student pays in the $125 online fee per class; ordinarily it would be $465 per credit hour plus that.) The costs, including room and board, costs for studying abroad, meal plans, and information concerning refunds and other information beside, can be fairly easily acquired from the college's website (www.grace.edu) under a search for tuition. As a last note, the President of the college and seminary himself once a year hosts a seminar that all are required to attend on how he and the college are always trying for the best quality and price, listing various cost changes, needs, etc. and then comparing to other colleges, consequently showing how much care is put towards the students and what they and their parents are investing in. And as was mentioned before, if students are in real financial straits (such as this author!) those in the financial aid and business offices offer not only considerable understanding but also actual help.
