Prospective Students

Georgian Court University offers a culturally diverse, quality education where every student is afforded the opportunity to grow. Georgian Court is a Mercy values-centered educational institution where compassion, integrity, justice, respect and service are its roots.

A medium-sized university founded and sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy, Georgian Court University provides a comprehensive liberal arts education in the Roman Catholic tradition. Our size is a strong point, allowing for individual attention and close interaction between students and faculty.
