Coming in the Fall of 2021: We’ve cut tuition in half!

We are taking the next step in our commitment to affordability, and after seven consecutive years of discounting our undergraduate tuition by half or more for every accepted student, we are making that low net cost permanent! Beginning in the Fall semester of 2021, Goldey-Beacom undergraduate tuition is cut in half, to $425 per credit hour, or $12,750 for an annual full time load of 30 credit hours. Our generous merit scholarship offerings will remain available to qualified students to reduce this cost even further, and federal and state financial aid in the form of grants and loans can complete the student aid package for eligible students. At $12,750 per year, you will be hard-pressed to find a more affordable option among four-year colleges in the region!


For the Spring and Summer semesters in 2021:

With the costs of attending college continuing to rise, parents and students are finding it increasingly difficult to identify affordable education options. At Goldey-Beacom College, we are firm believers in providing a quality education at an affordable price, which is why we have established our Affordability Assurance Fund that gives every newly accepted student a financial award of $460 per credit hour, designed to bring tuition costs within every family's budget.

Keep in Mind:

  • 100% of accepted full-time GBC students receive an Affordability Assurance Award
  • In the Fall of 2019, traditional undergraduate students had 99% of their financial need met
  • Goldey-Beacom College is typically the lowest cost for any 4-year private education in Delaware and the surrounding region
