Community College Opportunity Grants make community colleges affordable for New Jerseyans. CCOG awards pay for the cost of tuition and approved educational fees for New Jersey residents with an annual adjusted gross income (AGI)
between $0 and $65,000. New Jersey residents with AGIs between $65,001 and $80,000 pay reduced tuition costs after up to
one-half of the maximum CCOG award available at their community college is applied. New Jersey residents with AGIs between $80,001 and $100,000 will pay reduced tuition costs after up to one-third of the maximum CCOG award available at their community college is applied. The CCOG covers the cost of tuition and
