A Gordon education is a valuable investment worthy of hard work and sacrifice. Students are expected to draw upon every resource available to them-personal and family assets and income, scholarships and loan funds-in financing their share of the cost.
Gordon’s Financial Contribution
In an effort to reduce the financial burden on individual students, Gordon depends on gifts from many charitable sources to help pay for each student’s education. These generous gifts have resulted in an equivalent annual benefit of more than $9,500 per student enrolled. These donations are needed above and beyond the money raised through the collection of tuition and fees.
Business as Usual Tuition
In October 2020 the College announced a price reset for Fall 2021 that reduced the upfront costs of Gordon’s tuition by nearly $13,000 (or 33 percent). Current students were given the choice between the pricing model they have been using (what we’re calling “Business as Usual”) and the new model (what we’re calling the “Gordon Game Change”).
Please visit www.gordon.edu/bautuition to view the breakdown of tuition costs for students who have chosen the Business as Usual billing model.

Comprehensive Student Services Fee*
This fee covers student activities, student services, and technology. All students living on campus are charged this fee, as well as full time students living off-campus or enrolled in an external education program through the College. Students living off-campus who are enrolled in 5-11 credits are charged half of this fee, but there is no charge for students enrolled in 4 credits or less.
Counseling Center Fees*
Students are provided one regular visit to the Counseling Center per semester at no cost with an access fee of $100 per semester for all subsequent visits within that period. There is a no-show appointment fee of $20 if a student misses a scheduled appointment without prior cancellation.
All applicants for admission pay a $50 fee to cover part of the processing cost. It is not refundable and is not credited to the cost of registration. Persons desiring evaluation of credits (transcripts) for transfer from other institutions must send $50 with their request. This is not refundable but may be credited to the application fee.
New students. All students accepted for admission must remit a nonrefundable deposit of $250 before May 1 for fall semester (December 15 for spring semester) or as indicated on their letter of acceptance.
- $200 will be credited toward first-semester charges.
- $50 will be held as a damage deposit to cover possible fines and miscellaneous charges at the time the student graduates, or withdraws. The deposit is refundable approximately one month after graduation (or after a timely and proper withdrawal), provided no charges have been made against the account.
Returning students. Students returning for the 2024-2025 academic year must remit by March 15, 2024 a $100 nonrefundable preregistration deposit. A returning student’s spring semester bill must be paid in full before deposits for the upcoming academic year will be accepted.
All students residing on campus must pay an additional $100 housing deposit prior to April 1. If a housing reservation is cancelled in writing before June 1, the deposit will be refunded in full. If a housing reservation is cancelled in writing between June 1 and June 30, $50 will be refunded. No refund is offered if a housing reservation is cancelled on or after July 1.
All fees are subject to change by action of the College administration.
Leave of Absence and Withdrawal
Leave of Absence. A student who desires to take a leave of absence for one or two semesters must complete the online leave of absence process through Student Life in Lane Student Center. Students who are absent for more than two semesters must reapply for admission.
Withdrawal. A student who wishes to withdraw from Gordon College must complete the online withdrawal process through Student Life in Lane Student Center.
IMPORTANT NOTE: A student who leaves Gordon College without completing the official leave of absence or withdrawal process will be considered to have withdrawn, and will be required to apply for readmission if he or she later wishes to return to the College. Failure to officially withdraw may result in an inability to obtain a financial refund.
Balance due. When a student withdraws or takes a leave of absence, and his or her account has a balance due, it must be paid in full. If full payment cannot be made at that time, the student must enroll in a Non-Current Student Payment Plan with AutoPay, through CASHNet (automatic monthly deductions from a checking account or credit card). If the student fails to do so, the College may charge interest at the rate of 1.25 percent per month (15 percent annually), or refer the account to an outside collections agency. All collection fees are charged to the student.
Gordon College Refund Policy
Tuition charges: If a student withdraws from Gordon College before a term begins, or in the first four weeks of the term, the College will refund some or all of their tuition charges. The portions that will be refunded depend on the date of withdrawal. In the chart of dates and percentages, the right column lists the dates by which a student must initiate the formal process of taking a leave of absence, or withdrawing, in order to obtain the percent refunds listed in the left column. Processing a refund takes approximately two weeks. If the refund creates a credit balance on the student’s account, that refund may be requested in writing.
Room charges: No refunds are offered for room charges.
Board charges: Board refunds will be granted per schedule below. A student who provides notification of withdrawal prior to the beginning of a semester will receive a refund of 100% of all board charges. For updates to this policy, see the Financial Guide (www.gordon.edu/financialforms).
Refunds for Withdrawal
Students who officially withdraw from the College through the Office of Student Life may be granted refunds on tuition charges based on the following schedule:
||Before August 23
||Before January 10
||August 23 - September 1
||January 10 - January 19
||September 2 - September 8
||January 20 - January 26
||September 9 - September 15
||January 27 - February 2
||September 16 - September 22
||February 3 - February 9
||After September 22
||After February 9
A student who withdraws after registration without advice and consent of the dean of students, or who is suspended for disciplinary reasons or nonpayment of a financial obligation to the College, receives no refunds. An appeals process exists for students or parents who believe that an unusual circumstance exists which warrants exception to the published College policy. The appeal must be initiated through Student Life.
How Withdrawal Affects a Student’s Federal Aid
The Office of Student Financial Services is required by federal statute to recalculate federal financial aid eligibility for students who withdraw, drop out, are dismissed, or take a leave of absence prior to completing 60% of a semester. For unofficial withdrawals, the withdrawal date used for aid recalculation is the midpoint of the semester. The student’s eligibility for funds received from federal Title IV financial aid programs must be recalculated in these situations. Recalculation is based on the following Federal Return of Title IV funds formula.
- Percentage of earned aid = number of days of the semester completed up to the withdrawal date divided by the total days in the semester. Funds are returned to the appropriate federal program based on the percentage of unearned aid using the following formula:
- Aid to be returned = (100% of the aid that could be disbursed minus the percentage of earned aid) multiplied by the semester total amount of aid that could have been disbursed during the semester.
If a student earned less aid than was disbursed, the institution is required to return a portion of the funds that have been received by the student. Keep in mind that when Title IV funds are returned, the student may owe a balance to the institution.
If a student earned more aid than was disbursed, the institution would owe the student a post-withdrawal disbursement, which must be paid within 120 days of the student’s withdrawal.
If a student who began attendance and did not officially withdraw fails to earn a passing grade in at least one course over an entire semester, the college must assume that the student has unofficially withdrawn. Federal financial aid recipients will have their awards reviewed and recalculated based on that status.
Failure to officially withdraw may result in an inability to obtain a financial refund. For Summer Term withdrawal and refund policies, click here.
Students who withdraw or take a leave of absence from the college and are receiving federal financial aid may be subject to the federal Return of Title IV Aid and state financial aid return policies. Students who plan to withdraw or take a leave of absence must notify Student Life. Non-attendance does not constitute official withdrawal. If a student who began attendance and did not officially withdraw fails to earn a passing grade in at least one course over an entire semester, the college must assume that the student has unofficially withdrawn. Unofficial withdrawals will be determined within 90 days of the end of the semester. Federal financial aid recipients will have their awards reviewed and recalculated, causing a reduction in aid awarded.
Remember that if you are not enrolled at least half-time for more than six months, your student loans will go into repayment.
Refunds for Dropped Courses
Students officially dropping from courses with approval of their advisor may be granted a tuition refund to the level of the new course load as follows: Full refund is allowed for any difference in tuition charges due to reduced load when such a drop takes place during the first five days of classes; no refund is allowed thereafter (except for course fees if quad 2 or 4 courses are dropped). Special refund policies apply to Summer Term and applied music. See departmental offices.
Withdrawing from courses beyond the full refund deadline does not remove hours from the tuition block. Adding a quad 2 or 4 course may increase the student’s tuition. Although a student may be within a block tuition level at a particular point during the semester, billing is based on total credits registered for during the semester, less refunds for courses dropped before the refund deadline.
Payment for the first semester will be due July 15, and payment for the second semester will be due December 15. An optional monthly payment plan is available. The payment plan does include an enrollment fee of $50 per semester. Payment plan details are outlined at www.gordon.edu/paymentoptions. Payment in full, or approval of a payment plan, is required to gain financial clearance to register or finalize registration.
Delayed VA Payments
Under S2248 PL 115-407 Section 103, Gordon College will not impose a late fee, denial of access to facilities, or other penalty against a veteran or eligible dependent due to a late payment of tuition and/or fees from the VA up to the certified benefits amount. Any portion of the student bill not covered by VA benefits is still expected to be settled by the due date.
Attending a Christian college represents a significant investment of a family’s resources. Gordon’s Student Financial Services Office is committed to helping families meet the costs of a quality liberal arts education. The Student Financial Services Office identifies financial resources for eligible students. A financial aid package may consist of grants, scholarships, loans and student employment opportunities funded through federal, state and College sources. This financial aid is intended to bridge the gap between the cost of education and the family’s calculated ability to pay.
Two Types of Financial Aid
In broad terms, financial aid can be divided into two types or categories: merit-based and need-based. Merit-based aid is awarded based on achievement (academic performance, demonstrated leadership, etc.), regardless of a family’s financial circumstances. Students who apply for admission will automatically be reviewed for most of Gordon’s merit-based aid programs. Need-based aid is awarded based on a family’s financial need.
Applying for Need-Based Aid
New families applying for need-based aid must submit financial data by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. The FAFSA for the upcoming academic year is normally available beginning on October 1st. If a FAFSA is selected for verification, families will also need to submit to Student Financial Services the Gordon Verification Worksheet and all required documentation.
Returning students must reapply for financial aid each year using the FAFSA and the Gordon Scholarship and Aid Renewal Application.
The priority deadline for receipt of all application materials for new and returning students is March 1. It is not necessary for a student to be accepted for admission before submitting financial aid applications. While applications received after these deadlines will be reviewed, some funds may be depleted and thus unavailable. Gordon College adheres to a need blind admissions policy.
Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)
Federal regulations require that schools monitor the academic progress of each student receiving federal financial assistance and that the school verify that the applicant is making satisfactory academic progress (SAP) towards earning his or her degree. SAP is monitored at the completion of every semester to ensure financial aid recipients are maintaining satisfactory progress in the following two areas:
- Qualitative Standard (Cumulative Grade Point Average)
- Quantitative Standard (Maximum Time Frame and Credit Completion Rate)
Qualitative Standard (Cumulative Grade Point Average)
Students must maintain the minimum cumulative grade point average outlined in the chart below to meet the cumulative grade point average requirement. These cumulative grade point average standards are consistent with the academic standards required for graduation.
According to federal regulation 668.34, students must have a GPA of at least a C (the equivalent of 2.00) after completing their second academic year.
Included in the credits attempted are accepted transfer credits and all courses attempted at Gordon, which includes withdrawals, incompletes and failed courses.
Quantitative Standard (Maximum Time Frame and Credit Completion Rate)
Federal regulations state that students will not be eligible to receive financial aid once they have attempted more than 150% of the normal credits required for their degree program. At Gordon, students will no longer be eligible to receive financial aid once they have attempted 186 credit hours. To ensure that students will finish their program within this timeframe, Gordon requires that 67% of cumulative credits attempted be completed in order to meet this requirement. A student’s completion percentage is determined by dividing the number of attempted cumulative credit hours by the number of cumulative credit hours that were earned. This figure will be evaluated at the end of each semester.
The following are considered when evaluating a student’s satisfactory academic progress:
Withdrawals, incompletes and failures are considered attempted but not earned hours.
- Passing credits received for pass/fail courses are considered attempted and earned credits; failing grades in pass/fail courses are considered attempted but not earned.
Satisfactory grades received for satisfactory / unsatisfactory courses are considered attempted and earned credits; unsatisfactory grades in satisfactory / unsatisfactory courses are considered attempted but not earned.
All repeated courses are included in the calculation of both attempted and earned hours.
Transfer credits accepted by Gordon College are included in the credit completion rate and maximum time frame calculations, but not the GPA.
What Happens if I Do Not Meet Satisfactory Academic Progress?
At the end of each semester, Student Financial Services will review each student’s academic progress to determine if they meet the criteria outlined above. The first time a student fails to meet the SAP criteria, they will be on financial warning. If that student fails to meet SAP criteria for a subsequent semester, they will lose their Title IV eligibility.
Financial Aid Warning
A student who fails to meet the prescribed minimum requirements for satisfactory academic progress will be placed on Financial Aid Warning for the subsequent semester attended. During the semester the student on Financial Aid Warning is eligible to receive federal, state, and institutional financial aid. At the end of the Financial Aid Warning semester, the student must meet satisfactory academic progress standards, otherwise the eligibility to receive federal, state, and institutional financial aid will be lost for the following semester.
Students who are not meeting the satisfactory academic progress after the Financial Warning semester may appeal to have their situation reviewed by Student Financial Services. Approval of a student’s financial aid appeal will be based on extenuating circumstances outside the normal school activities that had an impact on the student’s ability to achieve the minimum standards of satisfactory academic progress. The appeal must be submitted in writing by the student to the Student Financial Services Office and include:
- Why the student failed to meet satisfactory academic progress.
- What has changed that will allow the student to achieve the standards of satisfactory academic progress.
Financial Aid Probation
If the appeal is approved, the student will be notified and placed on Financial Aid Probation. This provides the student with one additional semester of financial aid eligibility in which to regain compliance with satisfactory progress standards. Alternatively, an appeal may be conditionally approved, with the requirement that the student have an academic plan in place. If SAP is not met after the probationary semester, or the academic plan is not followed, the student loses eligibility of receiving federal, state, and institutional financial aid.
Students whose appeals have not been approved may regain eligibility for aid when they reach the minimum standards of satisfactory progress. Students may continue to attend courses at Gordon College without the assistance of federal, state, and institutional financial aid. In addition, students may be able to attend classes elsewhere in order to demonstrate eligibility for the reconsideration of aid. Students are determined to be eligible for funds when they have satisfied the minimum standards of satisfactory progress.

Payments on Direct Loans are deferred while attending at least half-time. Annual loan limits are: $5,500 for freshmen ($3,500 may be subsidized), $6,500 for sophomores ($4,500 may be subsidized), and $7,500 for juniors and seniors ($5,500 may be subsidized). Independent students will qualify for an additional unsubsidized Direct Loan. Eligibility for the subsidized portion of the Direct Loan is based on financial need as determined by the Student Financial Services Office. Students who do not demonstrate financial need will be awarded the maximum unsubsidized Direct Loan. The FAFSA must be completed each year to receive Direct Loans.
Parent Loans (PLUS). Parents may borrow up to the cost of attendance minus other aid at below-market rates. Repayment begins within 45 days after receipt of the loan and may be extended 10-15 years. A deferment option is available from the lender. Contact the Student Financial Services Office for more information.
These funds were given to the College to underwrite its financial aid programs. Funds from these scholarships and other annual scholarships may be used to replace Gordon grants and underwrite merit scholarships. Eligibility is determined based upon financial need and the criteria established by the donors. Additional unendowed scholarships are also available.

Graduate Grant and Scholarship Assistance
Gordon College encourages its best and brightest students to apply for grants and scholarships for postgraduate study. Pamela Thuswaldner, the Gordon College Fulbright Program advisor, guides students through the application process as they submit draft research and/or teaching proposals, collect required forms, prepare for their campus committee interview, and complete their applications. In 2008 Emily Fisher, a 2005 Gordon College graduate with a psychology major, was awarded a Fulbright student grant to study health promotion philosophy and research methodology at the University of Bergen. Ms. Fisher was the fourth Fulbright recipient from Gordon College in the last three years. The Fulbright Student Program is designed to give recent B.S./B.A. graduates, master’s and doctoral candidates, young professionals and artists opportunities for personal development and international experience. Participants are chosen for their leadership potential and have the opportunity to observe each other’s cultures, exchange ideas and teach or undertake research and graduate study.

On- and off-campus part-time jobs are available through the Student Employment Office, where job opportunities and employer contacts are posted online. In on-campus hiring, priority is given to students receiving a Federal Work-Study allotment as part of their financial aid package. Off-campus opportunities range from one-time projects to year-round part-time jobs that may or may not be career-related. Typically, students work 10-15 hours per week during the term. Before starting any on-campus employment, students must complete new hire paperwork requiring an original passport, birth certificate or social security card. Students have access to all on- and off-campus job postings through the student employment website: www.gordon.edu/studentemployment.
