Garden State Guarantee provides better access to college affordability

There is good news for students who are currently in their third and fourth years in college; if they have an annual adjusted gross income of $0 to $65,000, they have an opportunity to apply for $0 tuition at Stockton. To apply, all students have to do is apply for the FAFSA or New Jersey Alternative Financial Aid Application (for NJ Dreamers).

This feature comes just in time for the Stockton Promise Program, which offers reduced tuition and other fees for first-time freshmen or transfer students.

Stockton Chief Enrollment Management Officer Robert Heinrich said, “It can also help someone who may have left college, and would like to return, or who is interesting in transferring to Stockton.”

President Harvey Kesselman also supports this initiative, as he claims that no student should have their education dreams restricted by financial deficiencies.

These initiatives are part of Governor Phil Murphy’s promise to increase statewide college affordability, no matter who you are as a resident of the Garden State.
