New Jersey Tuition Aid Grant (TAG)
The Tuition Aid Grant (TAG) is available for full and part-time undergraduate students who have been legal residents of New Jersey for at least 12 consecutive months prior to enrolling in a New Jersey institution. Students who have received an associates/baccalaureate degree and beyond do not qualify for any state aid at a two-year college. Awards vary from year to year.
The New Jersey Education Student Assistance Authority (HESAA) uses a State Formula to determine eligibility.

Educational Opportunity Fund Program
The New Jersey Educational Opportunity Fund provides financial assistance and support services (e.g. counseling, tutoring, and developmental course work) to students from educationally and economically disadvantaged backgrounds who attend institutions of higher education in the State of New Jersey. These grants are renewable based upon continued eligibility.
NJ STARS is a scholarship program exclusively for New Jersey residents that graduate in the top 15% of their high school class (from a New Jersey high school only). NJ STARS covers the cost of tuition. Students must be full time and not in need of remedial study.
