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®.
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.
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.
