Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

4.12 Average Rating
It's expensive, but scholarships are available, and if you're committed, Gordon will find away. There's a wide variety of opportunities beyond classes.
Teresa from Lake Saint Louis, MO
Gordon is really expensive but then again so is pretty much every private college in the United States. Gordon does realize that, and you can always go to the financial office if you think you're struggling, they're really nice there and will help you out.
Stephanie from Boston, MA
Gordon is really expensive but my counselor was awesome and really wants to help me find as many scholarships as I can!
Samantha from Pike, NH
It is a really expensive school, so not coming from money has made it financially difficult, but ultimately, I feel like it is worth it. The amount I'm learning is great, and the atmosphere is really positive.
Jonathan from Adams, MA
Gordon is expensive--no doubt about that. But with scholarships, financial aid, and work study it is manageable and you definitely get your money's worth: in and out of the classroom.
Ashley from CT
Very Expensive but you will receive a lot of financial help. You just need to organize and apply for scholarships.
MA Student
gordon is expensive, but it's worth it in my opinion. you'll pay a lot, but you get a great education and great, life-long relationships out of it. although you'll pay a lot more for gordon than other colleges, it's important to keep in mind that gordon is still cheaper than many other competing schools.
Christopher from Marshfield, MA
the school is very expensive but the experience is great. i believe it is worth it, especially if you are looking for a good christian school.
Christian from Bellingham, MA
gordon is costly, like most private colleges. but for what you're spending you definitely get everything you could possibly imagine and more! gordon is worth every penny. but, do not let the cost intimidate! applying for financial aid, loans, and scholarships are all popular go-to's for most gordon students!
Brittany from Peabody, MA
Great school - very expensive. If you can work around the high expense - it's DEFENITLY worth it!
