I attended grad school here. The campus is beautiful it's just frustrating getting through Lakewood to get there.

Georgian Court College is a wonderful place for liberal arts. Their open house in September 2016 was amazing. Great faculty and staff. I recommend this college to anyone interested with a major provided at this school.

I enjoyed my classes for the most part, I kept a 4.0, but after I finished my graduate certificate, months went by and I never received my certificate in the mail. So I called and they sent me an UNDERgraduate certificate. I had to call back and wait again for them to send me the correct GRADUATE certificate that I spent so much time studying for. I received complete financial aid, and then months after I graduated Georgian Court University they send me a bill for $1200 saying they made a mistake and gave me too much financial aid. How is this my fault, and how is that so when I received the same amount of financial aid every year? That's what I tried to find out and the school would never return my calls or anything. It was like they were done with me when I was done with their school. And they sent this amount of money to my credit. I think they are greedy and cruel and they do not represent their University well at all!!!!
