Community College Oppurtunity Grant

The Community College Opportunity Grant is available
for Academic Year 2020-2021!

New Jersey students enrolled in any one of the State’s 18 county colleges may be eligible for tuition-free college. Students who are enrolled in at least 6 credits per semester in Fall 2020 and/or Spring 2021 and who have an adjusted gross income of $0 -$65,000 will be considered for this state grant.

There is no separate application. If you already completed the FAFSA® or the NJ Alternative Financial Aid Application for NJ Dreamers, you are automatically being considered for this state aid.

Students who plan to begin their studies in Spring 2021 (classes begin in January or February 2021), must complete the 2020-2021 FAFSA®.

  1. Get started by visiting:
  2. Select Login
  3. When prompted for year, select Spring 2021
  4. Complete the 2020-21 FAFSA® by February 15, 2021 for Spring enrollment.

If you are a New Jersey Dreamer, complete the NJ Alternative Financial Aid Application.

Be sure to logon and keep an eye on your NJFAMS To Do List.

The New Jersey Financial Aid Management System (NJFAMS) is the primary source for you to view your financial aid status. If any information or documentation is needed to complete your application, it will be listed in NJFAMS.
