VAMOS, our new cohort program for Latinx students, is one of the many ways Georgian Court University invests in you so that you can invest in yourself and in the community. Together, that’s how we change the world.
Changing the world
is in our DNA
The Sisters of Mercy, the founders of Georgian Court, believe in the power of education to meet the needs of the community. VAMOS takes that same approach and prepares you to meet the needs of the future.
Start as early as Summer 2021!
Earn an affordable college degree. VAMOS allows you to attend your local four-year university at a deeply discounted rate, nearly as affordable as going to a community college. The special pricing is good for two years. During your junior and senior years, you will be eligible for GCU merit aid based on your GPA.
Pursue your degree with people who get what it’s like to be you. VAMOS takes a cohort approach. That means you will learn with a group of Latinx peers and join a special community of students who take carefully planned courses designed to help you meet your goals.
Get dedicated academic support from GCU faculty and staff, and join 12 invitation-only workshops offered through Avanzando, a program created by UnidosUS. These workshops give Latinx, first-generation college students the necessary tools and support to navigate and graduate from college.
Experience the power of mentoring and networking with Latinx scholars and professionals, as well as other supporters.
VAMOS is close to home—meaning you can hold down a job or honor family commitments in this area and still attend a four-year college full time!
VAMOS focuses on three important points to assist Latinx students in their journey through college:
a cohort experience, which allows you to learn with a specific group of peers;
dedicated support through workshops and other services;
and a lower cost of attending college.
