New Jersey's Community College Opportunity Grant Program Continues with changes to the program for this Fall, 2019.
New Jersey's Community College Opportunity Grant program was piloted in the Spring, 2019. The revised program provides "free tuition" for students whose household income does not exceed $65,000. It is part of Governor Murphy's 2020 budget, approved by the state legislature on July 1. Students who qualify* will receive free tuition for the Fall 2019 semester.
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.
