Grove City College believes in purposeful accounting of its finances. Most of the College’s operating expenses are covered by student tuition.
In order to preserve and protect its independence, Grove City College refused federal student beginning in the mid-1980s.
When the College was chartered, a broad, Christian-based cultural consensus prevailed in America. By charter, the doors of the College were open to qualified students "without regard to religious test or belief."
Since its founding in 1876, Grove City College, committed to Christian principles, has striven to be equal in academic quality to the finest four year colleges.
