GCU Invites High School Seniors to Freshman Instant Decision Day

Lakewood, N.J., Nov. 12, 2009—On Friday, November 20, at 10:00 a.m., high school seniors are invited to the Lake House on Georgian Court University’s Lakewood campus to have their applications reviewed, tour the campus, enjoy lunch, and meet with an admissions counselor to learn of the admissions decision—all in the same day.

One of the hardest parts of choosing a college is waiting to see if you are accepted. By attending this event, high school seniors will know if they are accepted before dinner. Included in the day is a tour of the historic campus, including classrooms and residences, and a delicious lunch in the university Dining Hall.

In the afternoon, an admissions counselor will review each student’s application personally and inform them of the admissions decision. Applications for the nursing program will be reviewed, but a final admissions decision will be made at a later date. Students need to bring their high school transcripts, SAT or ACT scores, and recommendations. Students will receive instant scholarship eligibility notifications to help them make their decision.

Registration is required, and confirmations will be given. Please register online at, choose Admissions, Campus Visit Events, go to Freshman Instant Decision Day, and choose Sign Up Now. For more information, call 732.987.2760.

An additional Freshman Instant Decision Day will be held on Friday, December 11, at 10:00 a.m. in Lake House.
