Georgian Court is committed to making college more affordable for as many students as possible. Our current tuition rates represent your costs before financial aid. But nearly all our students receive merit- or need-based awards, such as scholarships, grants, or loans. For a more accurate estimate of what you’ll pay, check your student account and anticipated financial aid amounts.
Our e-billing platform, Self-Service, makes it easy to pay bills charged to your student account. Anticipated balances (charges minus anticipated aid) are due three weeks prior to the start of each semester.
Here’s how you can make online payments:
To pay offline by check or money order, either visit us in person or mail your payments to Georgian Court University, Attn: Student Accounts, 900 Lakewood Ave., Lakewood, NJ 08701.

If your employer offers tuition reimbursement, you must submit a letter (using company letterhead) that confirms your eligibility and your company’s reimbursement policy. This letter needs to be handed in at the start of the semester in order to avoid any late fees. In addition, any fees or partial payments that you’re responsible for must be paid by the current due date to avoid any billing holds.
The only portion of the bill deferred through tuition reimbursement is the amount due from the company. If you need proof of payment for company reimbursement, you can contact us or log in to Self-Service to print a statement showing your account is paid in full. (Please note that our office doesn’t have access to grades. You can make grade requests through the Office of the Registrar or via Self-Service.)
You must have no balance in order to register for future classes. If you have a balance during registration time, your account will be placed on a billing hold to prevent you from registering. This also means you won’t be able to receive grades or transcripts.
Review your student account on Self-Service to make sure no balance is due. The only way to remove a billing hold is to make a full payment of your balance. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have further questions.
