Calculate Your Tuition and Fees

Net price refers to how much you’ll pay toward tuition in a single academic year after scholarships and grants (two forms of financial aid that you don’t have to pay back) are accounted for. By using GCU’s Net Price Calculator (NPC), you’ll have a good picture of how much federal, state, and institutional aid you may be eligible to receive. In as little as ten minutes, you can have an estimate of how much aid you could receive.

Financial Aid Can Help You Afford Your Education

Georgian Court University is committed to making college affordable for all. Part of that commitment includes awarding millions of dollars in institutional aid to our students each year. This means that hardly anybody pays full tuition or “sticker price.”

Financial aid comes in a variety of forms, including scholarships, grants, loans, and more. Some forms of financial aid are need-based, while others are merit-based. Your need is determined by the results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)—submitting this form before the deadline is key to obtaining financial aid. Our Office of Financial Aid is here to make the process simple.

Explanation of Fees

Accident Insurance Fee: The Student Accident Insurance Plan is required for all full-time students. Students are covered 24/7 whether on or off campus. Even if a student has health insurance, the MSA plan fills in the gaps paid out-of-pocket due to higher deductibles, copays, and coinsurances. It also provides accident coverage for students without health insurance. Click here for more information (pdf).

Comprehensive Fee – Grad: This fee is charged to all Lakewood Campus or online graduate students and covers the costs associated to services and usage of the library services, counseling & health services, career development, computers, fitness center, learning management System, e-mail and more.

Comprehensive Fee – UG:  This mandatory fee covers the following: Use of the library, ID card, lectures, cultural and social functions, student publications, Academic Development and Support Center workshops, IT costs, e-mail costs, Self-Service usage, and reduced rates for university-sponsored trips.

Graduation Fee: The graduation fee is charged whether you attend the ceremony or graduate in absentia. This fee covers the cost of the final degree audit, the diploma, the commencement ceremony, and the graduation regalia.

Parking Fee: All Lakewood Campus students are charged a parking fee each semester, even if all your classes are online.  You must complete the Parking Registration Form on Self-Service to either waive parking (your fee will be reversed) or register your car to receive a parking hangtag.  You must waive your fee within the first month of the semester otherwise your parking fee will NOT be reversed even if you do not have a car on campus.

Student Activity Fee: All full-time students pay this mandatory fee each semester to fund the programs and activities offered to the students. This is an effort to help them network, extend their learning experience and create more of a social/university cultural experience.
