The class size was what got me, along with the school value system. My son was not just a student in the class; his success was important to his committed and devoted professors all through the four years that he was a student.

OPPORTUNITY MADE

AFFORDABLE

As a parent, you most likely have tuition costs on your mind. While looking at schools, remember that at Georgian Court, more than 99% of our full-time students receive some sort of financial aid, whether it’s in the form of scholarships, grants, or loans.

In fact, GCU commits more than $19 million each year in scholarships, grants, and other financial support. For many students, that makes the cost of attending GCU close to the tuition charged by New Jersey’s larger public universities.

A BEAUTIFUL PLACE
TO LEARN

Georgian Court is set on the former estate of financier George Jay Gould, son of a railroad tycoon. The estate’s architecture earned it a designation as a National Historic Landmark. Here, the grounds feature 156 magnificent acres of formal gardens and lush lawns that border the north shore of Lake Carasaljo. Along with all that natural beauty, there are athletic fields, residence halls, dining options, and a huge wellness center.
