“Traveling abroad for our service trip to Guyana, softened my heart. Being able to take a lot in, and deal with a lot of heaviness on this trip has helped me to understand people, and why people commit crime—sometimes because it’s a last resort to be able to eat. Understanding diversity, and being empathetic will be extremely helpful in my career in law enforcement.”
Georgian Court University is a spectacularly beautiful place for your student to learn. At GCU, they join a community of scholarship, empowerment, and friendship. We’re a small school offering a life-affirming education in the Catholic Mercy tradition.
You already know your student has the potential to make a difference in the world. At Georgian Court we also believe every student—personally and collectively—has the capacity to change the world for the better.
With our 12:1 student-to-faculty ratio, students at The Court get the individualized attention they need to gain specific knowledge in their major as well as the broad skills needed to succeed in their workplace and community after graduation. Ours is a highly personalized environment where students learn and lead, then leave with the skills they need to succeed after college.
Founded as a women’s college in 1908, Georgian Court became fully coed in 2013. Women and men now live on campus and enjoy the full range of co-curricular activities and NCAA Division II athletics that contribute directly to your student’s success at college and beyond.
In entrusting your student to a college, rest assured that Georgian Court is a safe and smart choice. We offer an accessible, values-rich education at a tuition cost among the lowest of private schools in New Jersey. In fact, GCU commits more than $12 million each year in scholarships, grants, and other financial support. For many of our students, this makes the cost of attending GCU similar to tuition charged by New Jersey’s larger, public universities. The Mercy core values of justice, integrity, respect, compassion, and service are at the foundation of all we do. We know you’ll appreciate the difference Georgian Court University makes in the life of your student.
