Gov. Phil Murphy pledged during his campaign to eliminate tuition at New Jersey’s community colleges. And in his budget, he proposed $50 million in additional tuition assistance for low-income students, the first step toward making the colleges entirely tuition-free by 2021.
Murphy, a Democrat, said the grants will allow nearly 15,000 more students with household incomes below $45,000 to attend tuition-free starting in the spring of next year.
