Out-of-State Scholarships

The College of New Jersey has a long history of providing a world-class education at a reasonable cost. In continuation of our mission of excellence, equity, and affordability, TCNJ will meet these extraordinary times with a new level of support for our out-of-state families.  For the incoming Fall 2021 class, TCNJ will re-calibrate our out-of-state tuition rate, scaling it back by approximately $6000-$7000.

Merit and Need-Based Scholarships

In addition, we will offer merit and need-based scholarships to our most deserving applicants to bring tuition costs closer to those paid by in-state residents.  These awards will range from $1000 to $6000 per year.  Successful merit scholarship candidates will have shown talent both inside and outside the classroom and have made a contribution to the life of their school community.  Most recipients of a merit award will rank in roughly the top 20% of their high school’s graduating class.

Lions Legacy Award

TCNJ also offers a Lions Legacy Award to the children of TSC / TCNJ alumni.  Any legacy student who attends TCNJ from out-of-state and meets the academic criteria listed below will pay in-state tuition during their four consecutive years of study.

Lions Legacy recipients must meet any one of the three following academic minimums:

  • Rank in the top 30% of the student’s high school graduating class.
  • 1150+ on a two-part (superscored) SAT
  • 23+ on a composite (superscored) ACT

All award packages from Admissions are received for eight consecutive semesters of study at TCNJ, provided that the student maintains a satisfactory GPA while at The College.
