Grambling State University was established in 1901 in response to a clamor by African-American farmers in the northern part of Louisiana for a school where Black children could go. A historically Black public co-educational university, Grambling State University stands on a 375-acre property in the heart of Grambling, Louisiana.
The university offers associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in over 64 programs through its School of Graduate Studies and Research and its four undergraduate colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business, Education and Professional Studies.
To assist students in their quest for higher education, the university relies on the services of 249 full-time faculty members, 140 of whom hold the highest degree in their chosen field. The student to faculty ratio is 20 to 1 which is a good ratio considering the large student population enrolled in the university.
Cost of tuition for full-time resident undergraduate students is US$2,553 for off-campus students and US$5,224 for those living on campus. For non-resident undergraduate students, the cost of tuition is US$5,496 for off-campus and US$8,167 for on-campus. For resident graduate students, cost of tuition is US$2,445 for off-campus and US$5,116 for on-campus. For non-resident students enrolled in graduate studies, the cost of tuition is US$5,388 for off-campus and US$8,059 for on-campus. These rates include tuition, meals, traditional room, and mailbox. The rate increases if the student wants to apply for a more expensive on-campus housing facility.
