Costs & Aid

As a highly selective institution, The College of New Jersey seeks those students with the greatest potential to benefit from and contribute to the superb academic community on campus. Considerable opportunities for financial assistance also help make the College accessible to promising students with financial need.

All accepted freshmen applicants are given the same consideration for scholarships and financial aid, regardless of whether they apply Early Decision I, Early Decision II or for General Admission.
