Tuition and Fees

Gardner-Webb University will make every effort to keep operating costs low while providing quality programs.  Through the support of various affiliated organizations, private gifts from alumni, businesses, friends, and endowment earnings, Gardner-Webb is able to charge less than the actual cost of instruction and other services.  Tuition increases are usually implemented at the beginning of the summer; however, the University reserves the right to adjust tuition and other charges at the beginning of any semester if such adjustments are necessary in the judgment of the Board of Trustees.
