Simplifying the Cost of College

Understanding the cost of college can be challenging. Graceland is much more affordable than most people think, and we want to ensure our tuition price is closer to what people actually pay. So we have transformed our base tuition price on the Lamoni campus from $32,500 to $19,950 beginning in fall 2024. As you consider college, you want a simple, easy-to-understand formula designed to ensure that the one-of-a-kind Graceland Experience is within reach for your family.

We offer generous financial aid through a simple scholarship process featuring a single primary institutional scholarship that considers your financial need, academic accomplishments, athletic success, and your involvement in extra-curricular activities such as art, music, theatre, communications, social change, spiritual life and sustainability. Your Graceland scholarship will be tailored to your strengths and interests. Plus, we still offer several competitive full-tuition scholarships.

A Second Major for all – Transformational Leadership

In the fall of 2022, Graceland launched Transformational Leadership, a completely distinct second major for all undergraduate students that is included in the cost of their tuition. This Graceland-exclusive major is awarded in combination with a student’s chosen disciplinary major, incorporating general education, leadership, and strategic skills that transfer to any career path. When students graduate, they are equipped with expertise in a discipline AND in transformational leadership, a unique combination that allows them to thrive throughout their first career, and for the one after that.

Your House – From Day one

At Graceland, inclusivity and belonging aren’t just words, they’re actions. A huge part of our dedication to these values comes from our unique House system. The Graceland House system combines on-campus housing and student government to create an instant community for all our first-year students — and that community continues through graduation and beyond. Although each house is unique, they all focus on the same things: coming together, having fun, and making your voice heard in your campus community.
