Financial Information

Gardner-Webb University will make every effort to keep operating costs low while providing quality programs.  Through the support of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, the Independent College Fund of North Carolina, private gifts from alumni, businesses, and other friends, and endowment earnings, Gardner-Webb is able to charge tuition which is less than the actual cost of instruction and other services.  The University, however, reserves the right to change tuition and other charges at the beginning of the semester if such change is necessary in the judgment of the Board of Trustees.
