2012 – 2013 Cost of Attendance

The Georgian Court University Financial Aid office establishes standard student budgets each year as a basis for awarding financial aid funds. Budgets are based on actual tuition charges, national average living allowances calculated by The College Board adjusted for the surrounding area, and include direct and indirect costs for the academic year (Fall and Spring semesters).

The following cost of attendance example is based on the following assumptions:

  • *All tuition charges are for full time.
  • On Campus Dorm room and board awards are based on students who live on campus in a double occupancy room and choose standard meal plan.

*Based on full time attendance

Tuition and Fees:
The tuition for all budgets is based on full time enrollment.

** New Student Orientation Fee is included and is a one-time fee charged to new undergraduate students who enter during the Fall 2012 semester only.

Room and Board:
Housing costs are based on a standard room. Students who choose other than standard housing must pay any additional charges.

Since commuters are living with parents/relatives, we assume no charges are being paid. Off campus rates are determined from the national average calculated by The College Board.

Costs for books and supplies vary by program, course load, and classes selected. The figure used is based on the average book sales calculated by the GCU Bookstore.

Transportation for all students is determined based on average transportation requirements for trips to home, semester breaks, and holidays based on the national rates provided by the college board and adjusted for the surrounding area. Individual transportation costs will not be considered.

This category represents every other student expense - clothes, personal hygiene, student insurances, entertainment, etc. as determined by The College Board's national average and adjusted for the surrounding area.
