Relief for the Bottom Line

Make your “Plan A” affordable.

On the way to a college degree, finances are typically one of the toughest adversaries you’ll face. Too often this means that families like yours have to sacrifice Christian community, intentional faculty relationships, and a biblical worldview for a “Plan B” option to attend a cheaper state or trade school.

Grace College has historically been among the top schools of our size in offering aggressive financial aid assistance, need-based grants, and overall academic value.
