If you have not submitted your 2020/2021 FAFSA application for financial aid, go to www.studentaid.gov to complete it.  NJ residents who received NJ State aid in the 2019/2020 academic year must complete their FAFSA no later than April 15, 2020, or you will lose NJ aid eligibility for one full year. 


Figuring out how to navigate the college financial aid process can be overwhelming. Students and parents can find direction and ease the burden of this intimidating process.
