A little over 7%, and we have plans to double that number over the next few years! Right now is actually the best time to apply to The College of New Jersey as an out-of-state student… keep reading to find out why.
No! The College of New Jersey is a highly selective institution, but because we are trying to bring more geographic diversity to our campus, we are a bit more flexible with out-of-state applicants during the admissions process.
Yes, because they are guaranteed housing all four years while at TCNJ! This is a huge perk for non-NJ residents who might not be as familiar with the off-campus housing options in the Ewing area. And with Campus Town now open, there are fantastic off-campus options for out-of-state upperclassman that are directly across the street from the main campus.
You bet! Over the past three years over 80% of our out-of-state students received award packages to help offset tuition costs. Out-of-state students are eligible for both merit and need-based scholarships in an effort to bring costs close to those paid by our in-state population.
Every out-of-state high school guidance counselor is allowed to submit a TCNJ School Counselor Fee Waiver on behalf of one student at their school. If you decide to apply to TCNJ, talk to him/her about this freebie! We mail and e-mail these waivers out in early September, but if your counselor never receives one, please have them reach out to our office.
The TCNJ Admissions Office usually hosts a variety of visit opportunities throughout the year but current health and safety standards have restricted our ability to open event registration for the Spring 2021 semester. Until we can host prospective students on our campus again, we encourage you to take advantage of a variety of virtual events outlined here.
