Undergraduate - Undergrad Tuition and Costs


Although we understand that funding a private Christian education can be challenging, we also believe that the value of a Greenville University education will exceed your expectations. Cost should not be the only determining factor when choosing a college; it is, however, a legitimate concern for many students and their families.

  • At Greenville University, approximately 96% of our students receive financial assistance in the form of merit scholarships, institutional awards, federal and/or state assistance, as well as low-interest student loans and work study.

Withdrawal & Refund Policy

Registration at Greenville University is considered a contract binding the student for the entire term.  Many commitments of the College are based upon the enrollment anticipated at the beginning of the term.

Greenville University adheres to a fair and equitable refund policy consistent with regulations set forth by the State of Illinois and the U.S. Department of Education.  This policy applies to students who officially withdraw from the University. Withdrawing from all classes requires a student to submit a completed online Withdrawal Form.  Failure to do so will result in the student being responsible for all applicable charges.  Refund of charges will be calculated according to the date the form is submitted. 

Students withdrawing from Greenville University during the first two weeks of a semester (prior to the drop date), will receive a full refund of tuition paid.  Room and board charges will be pro-rated by week based on the time spent on campus.  Withdrawals after the drop date of the semester will result in a refund of tuition charges according to the schedule below: (See academic calendar at your campus for exact dates.)

Return of Title IV Funds Policy

Calculations of the return of Title IV aid for withdrawals occurring during the first two weeks of a semester will be based on the last date of attendance for the semester in which the student withdraws.  Students who initiate a withdrawal from the University after the first two weeks of the semester will be eligible for a refund of the Title IV aid based on the date that the withdrawal form was submitted to Student Development.  A student who withdraws after the 60% point of the semester will not be entitled to a return of Title IV aid.



Statement of Financial Responsibility

Students who do not pay their account in full by each semester/term due date will not be able to register until their account is fully paid or they have set up a payment plan with TMS. Students with delinquent accounts will not be able to pre-register for subsequent terms, receive copies of their transcripts, or receive diplomas until the college receives full payment.

Greenville University reserves the right to assign any past due accounts to a collection agency. Further, the student agrees to pay any and all costs, including collection, attorney, and litigations costs incurred by the college in efforts to collect, should the student default on their account. In case of bankruptcy by the student, the student waives all access to transcripts and diploma(s) until all amounts are paid to the College.

Disbursements (payments) are made to your GU student account 2-3 weeks after the start of each term.
If you have additional funds available after your charges have been satisfied, you will receive the refund of the credit on your account within 14 days of the disbursement. For questions, please contact the Business Office at 618.664.7016.
