Financial Aid

The College’s financial aid programs are here to help and we encourage students to apply for financial assistance.

All students should file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

File a FAFSA as soon as possible

This is your application for Federal and State* financial aid, which most students don’t realize they qualify for this type of aid. Apply early to be considered for maximum grant aid. Remember to file your taxes and your FAFSA.

  • It is free to file a FAFSA and you should not be prompted to pay upon completion of the application. 
  • Most financial aid is not automatically renewable and a new application should be filed at the beginning of a calendar year, upon completion of your Federal Tax Return (if applicable).
  • You can view financial aid awards as well as documents required to complete your file on the student portal under the Student Tab. Use your Student Email when communicating with our staff.

Financial Aid Deadlines

NJ State Aid Deadlines (NJ Residents Only) for the 2018-2019 Academic Year.
They do not affect your ability to apply for federal aid such as Federal Pell Grant and Federal Direct Student Loans.

Where can I view my Aid?
