GRTS EmPowerU Scholarship

At Grand River Technical School, we are proud of the training opportunities we provide at an affordable cost to you. You won't find any hidden, unwarranted fees. Our goal is to provide a high quality, high tech education at a price you can afford, without the weight of unnecessary debt when you complete. The following Net Price Calculator tool details the actual tuition you will incur, with an estimate, utilizing national averages, of the basic living expenses (housing, transportation, child care, etc) you may experience in a school year at Grand River Tech.

Use the Net Price Calculator to determine your average net cost of attendance at Grand River Tech School. Please note this calculation determines Cost of Attendance (including an estimate of living expenses) minus grant aid and scholarship aid, based on what similar students paid in a previous year.


In accordance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA), by October 29, 2011, each postsecondary institution that participates in Title IV federal student aid programs must post a net price calculator on its website that uses institutional data to provide estimated net price information to current and prospective students and their families based on a studentís individual circumstances. The net price calculator is required for all Title IV institutions that enroll full-time, first-time degree- or certificate-seeking undergraduate students.
