Gordon was initially out of my price range, mainly because I was looking at state schools. But the financial aid award definitely impacted my decision to attend. Gordon did a great job making their institution affordable, especially for a transfer student like myself. If you feel this is the place for you, stay proactive and let Gordon help you. They love transfer students!
