The only form you need to apply for state and/or federal aid is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You must list “The College of New Jersey” as a recipient and write TCNJ’s school code number (002642) on your FAFSA.
You must also provide your Social Security Number on your application to be considered for state and federal aid.
There are two options for filing the FAFSA:
- File electronically over the Internet, which is the quickest and most efficient process, via the Financial Assistance Web site.
- Complete the paper version of the FAFSA, which can usually be obtained from your high school or college or by calling 800-4-FED-AID.
