NJ Ready for Free College PlanAugust 3, 2018 |
by Nicholas Pugliese
Several thousand low-income students will be able to attend community college without tuition or fees next spring under a program Gov. Phil Murphy’s office announced Tuesday.
As part of the “Community College Innovation Challenge,” New Jersey’s 19 county colleges can apply for limited spots in the pilot program, which will cover tuition and mandatory fees for students at the selected institutions who make less than $45,000 in adjusted gross income and take at least six credits in the spring 2019 semester.
