GU covers a qualifying freshman or transfer student’s full cost of tuition not covered by other federal, state, institutional, and private awards. To qualify for Illinois Allegiance, an incoming freshman or transfer student must be a U.S. citizen, an Illinois resident, apply and receive acceptance from GU, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, qualify for the Federal Pell Grant and the Illinois Monetary Award Program (MAP) Grant, and have an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of 3500 or less.

“Greenville University continues to break down barriers to help students realize that a private Christian college education is affordable,” says Victoria Clark, GU’s chief enrollment officer. “We can't wait to see how this initiative positively impacts our campus culture. We look forward to graduating more students that impact the world through Christ-like character and service.”
