New Jersey Student Tuition Assistance Rewards Scholarship (NJSTARS)

New Jersey High School students who do not require remedial coursework and graduate in the top 15% of their class are eligible for 5 terms free tuition. You must apply for financial aid by completing your FAFSA  and provide your Final High School transcript with your rank. Check with your High School Guidance office to see if your rank is posted on your Final transcript. If it is not, or you ranked in your Junior year, you must submit a letter on your High School’s letterhead that is signed by the head of Guidance or higher and includes the number in your Junior or Senior year class and the number of your ranking.

Please review the NJSTARS OVERVIEW for a complete list of requirements.
