Georgian Court University offers an exceptional university experience at a cost that is below average for comparable private institutions. Georgian Court University is committed to maintaining excellence in our educational programs while ensuring accessibility to as many students as possible. At Georgian Court University, we recognize that a college education is one of the single largest investments a family makes. In our view, cost should not be a barrier to enrollment. That is why we are fully committed to our financial aid program.

The primary responsibility for financing higher education rests with the student and his or her family. However, understanding that students come from a variety of economic backgrounds, the university is prepared to provide financial assistance to students according to criteria for qualification. An array of financial aid programs is available to help students meet the cost of attendance at Georgian Court University. We view our financial aid program as an investment in students and their futures. We seek a diverse student body and are committed to ensuring that all students can take advantage of the Georgian Court University experience.

The university’s priority filing deadline for 2022–2023 is April 15, 2022. For 2023–2024 financial aid, all students are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon after October 1, 2022, as possible. The application may be accessed online at

If adjustments are made to the university’s federal and/or state allocations, the university reserves the right to adjust individual institutional aid awards at the beginning of each semester, as necessary.
