Determining NJ Tuition Eligibility

In-state tuition is determined according to the student's New Jersey residency status or eligibility for the New Jersey Dream Act.

Non-residents are charged an additional tuition rate. Normally, students must have their permanent residence in New Jersey for a minimum of one year prior to the start of the term in order to qualify for in-state tuition rates. 

Residency is determined at the time of admission to the university. If students have a change of residency after they have started their attendance, they may file a Residency Analysis Form to change their status from out-of-state to in-state. 

For more information or to complete a Residency Analysis Form go to NJ Tuition Eligibility
