Cost of Attending
Grace Baptist Bible College is committed to keeping the educational costs reasonable for students and their families. In order to make a Grace Baptist Bible College education affordable the College sets the cost at half the tuition cost of comparable institutions. Therefore, tuition cost at GBBC is $3,000.00 per semester and includes between 12-18 credit hours of instruction. Per credit hour cost is $250.00.
GBBC bills students at the beginning of each semester. After finishing the registration process, billing statements will be available on the Student Portal. Students can access their accounts any time using the Student Portal.
In addition, students are responsible for the cost of books (estimated around $300 per semester) and personal expenses.
Description of Charges
Full-time tuition (12-18 credits) is $3,000 per semester. Non degree-seeking or degree-seeking students taking less than 12 credits or more than 18 credits are charged at a rate of $250 per credit hour.
The normal cost for auditing a course is one-half of the published tuition rate. However, special discounts are often made available for auditing a night course or a module. You may contact the college office for additional information.
Students are charged a $50 registration fee during their pre-registration for each semester. If students register late, they will be charged an additional $50 for a late registration fee. See school calendar at the end of the catalog for specifics on date.
Students who drop or add a course will be assessed a $10 processing fee.

Students or graduates who desire an official transcript must pay a $5 processing fee. Please contact the Registrar for such a request.
Books may be purchased through a variety of online sources. Textbook information for any given semester will be available six weeks prior to the semester (see our online bookstore via our website). Students should purchase and have books available on the first day of class. It is estimated that students will pay $300 per semester for their required textbooks.
Grace Baptist Bible College has committed to keeping its tuition affordable and highly competitive; therefore federal or institutional financial aid is not deemed appropriate at this time.
Students can either pay their tuition in full at the start of each semester, which begins on the day of registration, or make four equal payments throughout the semester.
If the latter is chosen, the following payment plan is in effect. For the fall semester, the first payment would be due at registration in August and the three other payments would be due on the first of October, November, December. For the spring semester, the first payment would be due at registration in January and the three subsequent payments would be due on the first of each month in February, March, and April.
Students who fail to pay tuition in accord with the terms of their agreement may not be allowed to attend classes, their tuition agreement may be terminated, their fixed tuition agreement (if any) may be terminated, and their deposit (if any) forfeited, unless they have received prior written approval by GBBC’s Business Office for adjustments to their payment schedule.
Students whose tuition agreements are terminated because of failure to meet the terms of their agreements must sign a new tuition agreement.
All refunds for charges will be issued to the student on a weekly prorated basis through the end of the fourth week of the semester. No refunds will be given after the fourth week. The refund rate will follow the charted rate of return and will be calculated based on day of completed paperwork.
