Finish Faster with 15 Credits

This is a graph showing the impact of the block rate on degree cost using the scenarios presented on this page.

Scenario 1: Students enrolled in 12 credits per semester won't be using the block rate. These students will accumulate 120 credits in five years and will have paid tuition for 120 credits.

Scenario 2: Students enrolled in 15 credits each semester are in the block rate (paying for 12 credits). These students will accumulate 120 credits in four years, and have paid tuition for 96 credits.


Students who earn at least 15 credits per semester not only pay less in tuition, they are also more likely to graduate on time compared to those who take fewer credits.

The minimum number of credits required to graduate from Grand Valley is 120.
