COLLEGE COSTS

Making College

Affordable For All

At Georgian Court University, hardly anyone pays full tuition or “sticker price.” More than 99% of GCU’s full-time undergraduate students receive some form of financial aid.

So don’t make the “total tuition” numbers your guide for choosing a school. One of the ways to assess whether a college is doable financially is to look at its average annual cost. Another is to look at its average four-year debt load and average aid to students. And be sure to use the Net Price Calculator (NPC) for an estimate of what your costs might be at GCU. We encourage you to do your homework and ask for our help. Call our Office of Financial Aid at 732-987-2258 or e-mail us at svanapvnynvq@trbetvna.rqh. We want to work with you to make this happen.

FINANCIAL AID

101

There are different types of financial aid awarded to college students. Some are need-based, while others are merit-based.

Here’s a quick tutorial:

Grants and loans are based on financial need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). So get that form in as soon as possible. It’s a deadline you don’t want to miss! There are also billions of dollars in scholarships out there. The key is finding them. One great source is fastweb.com, which maintains a database of more than 1.5 million scholarships for college students. Other reliable resources include scholarships.com, studentscholarshipsearch.com, and bigfuture.collegeboard.org.

I come from an immigrant household with three sisters. My older sister was also attending college at the same time, so paying two college tuitions with two more on the way was definitely something that was difficult and challenging for my parents. Nevertheless, my family is very loving and supportive and has been my greatest motivation. My scholarship released a huge financial burden for my family, and for that I am extremely grateful.
