Georgian Court Gets High Mark for Financial Responsiblity

3D9A9700

WHEN IT COMES TO passing the U.S. Department of Education’s financial responsibility test, Georgian Court University gets top marks. Each year, the federal agency scores degree-granting, private colleges on a scale of minus 1 to 3. Georgian Court recently received a 3—the highest possible score—coming in higher than several other private New Jersey institutions.

“At GCU, we constantly strive to improve our offerings and our efficiencies,” said President Rosemary E. Jeffries, RSM, Ph.D., ’72. “Even as we expand programs and upgrade academic and residential buildings, we work diligently to hold costs down, keeping affordability in mind when it comes to our students.”

The DOE’s most recent financial responsibility composite scores, released March 6, 2015, are based on data from the 2012-2013 fiscal year. The department examines a range of factors, including a school’s operating deficit or surplus, its assets, and its debts.

Georgian Court also fared well in September 2014, when the university made Money magazine’s “Best Colleges” list and the Washington Monthly magazine’s list of “Best Bang for the Buck” graduate programs.
