As the only public university in the south suburbs of Chicago, Governors State University prides itself on providing accessible and relatively affordable educational opportunities. The institution serves an economically and culturally diverse body of students, with academics at undergraduate, graduate and doctoral levels.
In accordance with its mission of accessibility, Governors State offers extensive financial aid programs. The GSU Foundation funds a number of academic scholarships, and the university also has a merit-based tuition waiver for outstanding students. There are also many part-time student jobs on campus to help lessen the burden of tuition. Of course, federal and state aid programs are also available.
Governors State administers its academics through four colleges:
- College of Arts and Sciences
- College of Business and Public Administration
- College of Education
- College of Health and Human Services
Very recently, the university began offering doctoral degrees through the College of Health and Human Services. The doctoral programs in that college now include Physical Therapy, Nursing Practice and Occupational Therapy. GSU also offers nearly 50 undergraduate and graduate concentrations, with over 20 certificate programs.
100% of students gave Governors State University 5 stars overall.
During my college search I found GSU 2 B warm, inviting, and picturesque campus . The staff and students are very helpful. Smiles filled the grounds. I can't wait to begin my classes! Exciting!!!!!!!!
