GVSU Announces $474 Increase to Annual Tuition, $70M Expansion in Grand Rapids
As Grand Rapids sees record growth, GVSU is set to expand its own downtown footprint.
Grand Valley State University has announced plans for a $70 million expansion to the Grand Rapids campus.
GVSU has also announced a $237 per semester increase to tuition.
Both announcements were made at the Board of Trustees meeting on July 14.
The $474 increase to annual tuition brings the annual tuition total to $11,994 for a full-time undergraduate Michigan resident.
The new $70 million building project will add room for the health professions and nursing programs. It will be built at 333 Michigan Ave. next to GVSU's Cook-DeVos Center for Health Sciences and within a block of Raleigh J. Finkelstein Hall which is currently under construction on Lafayette Ave. Construction on the new $70 million project is scheduled to begin in June 2018, with the opening set for May 2021.
Other announcements at Friday's meeting:
- A new master's degree program in Data Science and Analytics was approved. It will be part of the School of Computing and Information Systems and Statistics Department.
- An addition to the Performing Arts Center on the Allendale Campus will be finished in August. The two-story, 47,000-square-foot addition includes a black box theater, two classrooms and three ensemble rooms.
