Why Choose GBC

Thank you for considering Goldey-Beacom College in your college search! For over 125 years, this small college has provided a quality education at an affordable price for college students in the mid-Atlantic region.

College-bound high school seniors choose us because of our nurturing environment with small class sizes and accessible faculty. Division II athletics, both traditional and apartment-style residences, and a superb career placement office make us an easy choice for students seeking a well-rounded four-year experience that will prepare them for a prosperous future. With generous scholarship and grant money available for almost everyone, our net cost is one of the lowest in the region. For the Fall of 2021, our tuition is cut in half, for a low $12,750 for 30 credits annually.

Transfer students choose us because we appreciate the hard work they have completed elsewhere and strive to give credit where it is due. Students transferring from community colleges across the region often find they can complete the bachelor degree with us in two years or less. Scholarship and grant opportunities identical to those of entering freshmen set us apart from other colleges and make our transfer students some of our happiest. Many Delaware Technical & Community College SEED recipients can continue tuition-free enrollment with our SEED Extension Scholarship.

Working professionals choose us because of our flexible scheduling, our experienced faculty, and our friendly and convenient service. Whether looking to complete a bachelor's degree that was started years ago, or looking to add "MBA" to the resume, our adult learners find generous scholarship support and flexible payment options designed to fit most budgets.

International students choose us for our global perspective, our connections to international corporations providing internships and training opportunities, and for our ideal location halfway between New York and Washington, DC. Scholarship assistance is available for our international students as well!

Throughout our website, you will find details about our programs, our campus, our cost and our quality, but nothing substitutes for a visit to campus to really learn what makes us special. Campus tours and personal visits are available every weekday, as well as on select Saturdays throughout the year. Our office is open until 6:00 pm to accommodate working professionals as well. Come check us out, and we promise you'll be pleased with what you see.
