Community College Oppurtunity Grant

The Community College Opportunity Grant has been extended and expanded
for Academic Year 2019-2020!

New Jersey students enrolled in any one of the State’s 18 county colleges may be eligible for tuition-free college. Students enrolled in at least 6 credits for Fall 2019 and/or Spring 2020 and who have an adjusted gross income of $0 -$65,000 will be considered for this state grant.

There is no separate application. If you already completed the FAFSA® or the NJ Alternative Financial Aid Application for NJ Dreamers, you are automatically being considered for this state aid.

Students who plan to begin their studies this Spring (classes begin in January 2020), must complete the 2019-2020 FAFSA®.

  1. Get started by visiting:
  2. Select Login
  3. When prompted for year, select 2019-2020
  4. Complete the FAFSA® by February 15, 2020.

If you are currently receiving state financial aid and plan to continue your studies next year, complete the 2020-21 FAFSA by April 15, 2020.

If you are a New Jersey Dreamer, complete the NJ Alternative Financial Aid Application.

Be sure to logon and keep an eye on your NJFAMS To Do List.

The New Jersey Financial Aid Management System (NJFAMS) is the primary source for you to view your financial aid status. If any information or documentation is needed to complete your application, it will be listed in NJFAMS.
