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

3.40 Average Rating
Although Greenville is a private, Christian liberal arts college, it is actually less expensive than many comparable schools. It has a number of excellent academic programs, including education.
Katie from Pekin, IL
The price of the school is worth it for how amazing the environment is. You definitely get what you pay for.
Sarah from East Peoria, IL
I thought at first that Greenville was expensive but after attending and seeing all I can do i will say it is worth the buck. The classes will leave you wanting to learn more about a different subject, and the school events will have you wanting to do something every single day. I am very comfortable with giving my money to GC and you will be to.
Mrs.Aloha from Honolulu, HI
At GC you pay for atmosphere as well as education. Students who attend Want to be here. It's a Christian college (although you don't have to be a Christian or declared to attend) and religion isn't downplayed at all. You will be spiritually stretched and grow from your experiences. The DC (dining commons) offer a lot of food choices every day and the dorms aren't to shabby. The campus is beautiful and there are many people that work to maintain it.
Melanie from Harvard, IL
Greenville College is one of the best Christian colleges in the nation! You definitely get the bang for your buck if you are looking for a Christian college that promotes a healthy living and spiritual lifestyle, as well as has one of the best Education, Digital Media, Business, and Contemporary Christian Music majors around!
Imari from Fort Walton Beach, FL
Greenville College is expensive. I can't lie about that. But it is worth it.
Meagan from Nokomis, IL
GC has a lot of things to offer that many colleges don't. For example, I'm a Chemistry major, and I get to use a lot of technology (such as NMR spectroscopy, for anyone interested) that chem majors at other schools won't get the opportunity to use until Grad school--and I'm learning it as a freshman! And, if you're a music major or an audio engineering major, they have specialised recording studios in the basement of Whitlock Music Center, a couple of which are used by Blackroom Records, a recording company that actually uses GC facilities to record their music. The smaller classes and the class options provide for a learning experience unlike any other. GC may seem expensive upfront, but they have a lot of scholarships and aid to offer, even scholarships particular to your major.
Caitlin from Texico, IL
It's private, so it's pricey, but worth every penny. The food in the DC is pretty varied and not half bad for cafeteria food. Some of the dorms aren't the best, but you'll love being in them anyway. There are better dorms on campus, though, and once you're an upperclassman, you can live in them.
Jessica from Petersburg, IL
All the students at Greenville Iâ??ve talked with have said theyâ??re experience has been more than worth it. Not only are students receiving a respectable education, but they are forming relationships and establishing values of their own. College is a time to experiment, whether thatâ??s through different courses, unique activities, or new companions. Itâ??s important to put yourself out there; thatâ??s how Greenville goes beyond any other institution. It allows students to expand their horizons and truly become their own person.
