Welcome to Financial Aid
The mission and goal of the Financial Aid Office is to provide professional and personalized assistance to students who would not be able to attend college without aid. Paying for college involves coordination of the resources available from students, their families, Georgian Court University, and available federal and state programs. The Financial Aid Office provides Georgian Court University students and parents support by helping them understand financial aid regulations that determine their financial aid package and assisting them in meeting their financial responsibilities to the University. We look forward to assisting you in financing your education.
