Stockton program would guarantee 100% of tuition/fee costs

Stockton University has announced a new program for fall 2021 that guarantees 100% of the cost of tuition and fees for eligible first-year and transfer students.

The “Stockton Promise” grant program will cover the balance of tuition and fees after all other federal, state and institutional aid.

“The Stockton Promise represents our commitment to eligible students and their families so that financial circumstances will not be a barrier to attending college,” President Harvey Kesselman said in a prepared statement. “This program will help students achieve their educational goals and reduce potential loan indebtedness.”

The program is open to first-year undergraduate and transfer students who are enrolled full-time and are New Jersey residents with an adjusted gross income of $65,000 or less. Grants are renewable for up to four years.
