As a student at TCNJ, you’ll find many people willing and eager to help you adjust to college life, get the most from your classes, and put you in touch with the people and organizations that will help you reach your life goals.

TCNJ’s “Promise”

  • Established in 2004, the TCNJ EOF Promise Award provides additional financial support for our state’s parents and students to attend an institution of higher education in New Jersey where the financial need exceeds the financial aid available. (Unique to The College of New Jersey)
  • The EOF Promise Award was designed to meet the full cost to attend TCNJ, both the direct and indirect costs, including on-campus residency.
  • Continued Promise Award eligibility; sophomore year, is based on the student’s satisfactory progress and successful completion of 6 units and a minimum GPA of 2.0
