There are two types of financial aid available to students: loans (which you must repay) and scholarships (which you do not have to repay). Students can apply for student loans through TCNJ if you meet the following requirements:
- You are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident
- You are matriculated into a TCNJ program (NOT a visiting student).
- You are registered for a minimum of 5 credits in the term you are seeking aid (fall, spring, or summer)
If you meet these criteria, please complete the following steps:
- The 2018-2019 FAFSA application at fafsa.gov
- A PAWS application for financial aid.
- A PAWS promissory note.
NEW STUDENT AWARDS
A limited number of awards are available for new students who register for three summer courses in Mallorca, Bangkok, or Lisbon.
MILITARY SPOUSE CAREER ADVANCEMENT ACCOUNTS
TCNJ is also a participant in Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAA), a program that provides up to $4,000 (over 2 years) of financial assistance for military spouses who are pursuing associate degree programs, licenses, or certifications leading to employment in portable career fields.
Most global courses do not require textbooks; however, students are responsible for purchasing a required textbook when applicable. Your instructor will notify you with advance notice if your course requires a textbook.
LIVE TEXT FEE
Live Text is an electronic portfolio and assessment system. Every student in a professional program is assessed a one-time fee of $139 which is paid via your tuition bill. Please click here to learn how and why students register for LiveText.
US Citizens seeking standard New Jersey certification must arrange to take the Praxis Examination. Students will also be required to pay the state certification fee when they pursue their license. This cost varies by content area but is generally $170-$190.
Upon graduation from a Master’s program, students are charged a U.S. $100 graduation fee. This fee is applied to the cost of graduation, as well as the cost of transcripts. Students who complete a certificate program are not charged a graduation fee. The deadline for the application for graduation is February 15, 2019, for candidates graduating in May, August, and December 2019. If the application is received after February 15, 2019, our office cannot guarantee that diplomas/certificates will be available to students at the time of graduation.
