Georgian Court University is proud to have developed a longstanding partnership with Brookdale Community College.
This partnership exists with the mutual goal of providing student-centric focused educational opportunities available to Brookdale students, as well as the general public.
Through this partnership, students have the unique opportunity to pursue degree-completion programs via GCU@Hazlet, located at Brookdale’s Northern Monmouth Education Center in Hazlet, New Jersey.

Georgian Court University is committed to delivering a comprehensive liberal arts education in the Roman Catholic tradition. Since its inception in 1908, Georgian Court has evolved to offer a wide variety of academic programs that give students the tools to succeed in today’s world.

The GCU@Hazlet location exemplifies this, by offering in-demand degree programs geared toward both continuing and adult learner students. Students can choose to complete their bachelor’s degree in fields such as business, nursing, health professions, and education—as well as the liberal arts (such as English, psychology, and interdisciplinary studies)—to position themselves for lifelong opportunities post-graduation.

Additionally, students who are enrolled at Brookdale Community College have the exclusive and unique opportunity to pursue a brand new 3+1 pathway, which provides a more affordable, more accessible, and more convenient path to bachelor’s-degree completion.

GCU@Hazlet fulfills a need for those looking to further their education, without binding them to traditional college norms. Georgian Court University looks forward to providing affordability, flexibility, and convenience to students enrolled at GCU@Hazlet for many years to come and will continue to support our students as they explore opportunities and expand possibility.
