My TCNJ Application

TCNJ has two distinct systems to support students as they apply to (and ultimately enroll at) The College of New Jersey.

To accept your offer of admission and pay your enrollment deposit, sign in to your TCNJ PAWS Account.  Enrollment deposits for accepted students are non-refundable.

For your PAWS Account, if you receive a message that your login and password are not valid, please verify that you have typed it correctly.  Many applicants are confusing the lower case L and the number 1. You can also try copying and pasting your user name and password directly from the screen.

To check your application status, sign in to your TCNJ Application Portal.  You can also submit required TCNJ forms and upload materials directly into your application record.  Information about how to access your Application Portal will be sent shortly after your application is downloaded from The Common App.
