Bottom line

GMU’s tuition depends on if you are a resident of Virginia or not. In-state tuition is only $7,000, while students applying from other states can expect to pay $26,500. In addition, all students should expect to spend another $12,000 for room and board as well as various fees and supplies. Sixty-eight percent of freshmen can expect to receive some aid, and 57 percent borrow money to pay for school. The average cumulative debt for GMU students is $23,000. However, those who can make the financials work will join “a multicultural, multi-ethnic, and diverse university with students from all over the world, studying a wide range of fields and getting hands on experience due to our proximity to Washington, D.C.”
