You are leaving home to explore new possibilities, discover new opportunities, and find new ways to make a difference for God and others. At Gardner-Webb University, we believe your potential is worth significant investment.

Take advantage of the Foothills Commitment, which puts our values and
mission into action. We’re dedicated to keeping the cost of a quality, Christian
education low so that you can concentrate on your future. Choose from 60+
world-class degree programs. Pursue opportunities to grow in your faith, serve
others, and develop your leadership skills. Gain real-world experience and
learn from faculty mentors, who support you every step of the way. Go local
and go beyond the ordinary at GWU!

This special offer is for first-year, undergraduate residential students from
Gaston, Cleveland, Lincoln and Rutherford counties. Students must complete
their FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) to be eligible. The
Foothills Commitment offers additional assistance to make GWU even more
affordable. However, it will not increase aid if the students offer is already
greater from other scholarships or aid.
