New Jersey's Community College Opportunity Grant Program May Continue This Fall
New Jersey's new Community College Opportunity Grant program was piloted this Spring, providing "free tuition" for students whose household income does not exceed $45,000. It is part of Governor Murphy's 2020 budget proposal, to be voted on by the state legislature by July 1. With passage, students who qualify* will receive free tuition for the Fall semester.
Information for the upcoming Fall semester will be updated as it becomes available.
Disclaimer: Tuition grants offered through MCCC are limited to Mercer County residents. (Note other participating county colleges here.) The total amount of funds from the Community College Opportunity Grant is based upon the funding received through your FAFSA application and other tuition assistance monies received. Funding is by the State of New Jersey and is subject to change. All tuition funds are deposited to the college on behalf of each student in the program.
