An Affordable Investment

You don’t need to pay top-dollar for a top-flight education.

It’s easy to get nervous about the “sticker price”—the up-front cost of tuition, room and board, and fees before factoring in financial aid. The good news is that 99% of Gordon students receive financial aid (including 100% of first-year students!), which means that hardly anyone actually pays that price. Education is a critical investment, and we’re committed to making our first-rate Christian liberal arts education an affordable one for your family.

So, what's in it for me?

A nationally ranked education
Princeton Review’s Best 385 Colleges; U.S. News and World Report's Best National Liberal Arts Colleges.


Real-world preparation, grounded in faith
Within a year of graduation, 92% of Gordon alumni are employed or in grad school.


Global opportunities at no extra cost

The benefits of a big city
Gordon’s proximity to the global hub of higher education offers unparalleled access at a lower cost.


A personalized approach to learning
With a low student-to-faculty ratio, professors help you discover how to live out your unique call.


The time of your life
Gordon’s intentional Christian community is about preparing you for life—and making lifelong friendships in the process.

And how do we get there?

You can let the sticker shock go, because we want to partner with you to make this affordable. Gordon invests a great deal (millions of dollars!) in student financial assistance so we can work with you and your family to access the value of a Gordon experience.

In fact, families from all different circumstances and economic backgrounds are making it work. Take a look at the income breakdown for Gordon families applying for financial aid.

How we can help:

We’ll whittle down the sticker price through scholarships and grants—gift money that doesn’t need to be repaid.


Scholarships can reduce costs by up to $120,000 over four years


More than half of Gordon students receive need-based grants

What you can do:

And you’ll be able to bridge the gap through on-campus employment opportunities and loans, if necessary.


1,800 on-campus jobs open to any student


Nearly 99% of Gordon alumni successfully manage their college debt
