Atlantic Cape to Offer Free College to Eligible Students Beginning Spring 2019

group of men and women standing in front of table Atlantic Cape Community College has been selected as one of 13 community colleges to participate in Governor Phil Murphy’s “Community College Innovation Challenge (CCOG),” a pilot program that will launch in the spring semester, January 2019. The program supports making higher education more attainable for New Jersey residents by providing additional funding above federal, state or institutional financial aid money to effectively make college “free” for qualifying students.

Students who make an adjusted gross income of $45,000 or less, are taking six or more credits and have applied for federal and state grant aid may be eligible to have the remainder of their tuition and educational fees balance paid for through this program. Current students who have already completed a financial aid application for the fall 2018 semester will be automatically considered for eligibility if they enroll for at least six credits in the spring 2019 semester. Students who have not yet filed for financial aid for academic year 2018-19 will have until Feb. 15, 2019 to apply for CCOG awards. Potential students are encouraged to enroll for the spring semester starting Nov. 1 either online or visiting one of the college’s three campuses. Continue reading
