Many adult students meeting the demands of work and family find that making the financial commitment to complete their education can be a challenge. The Office of Financial Aid is ready to assist students in securing the resources they need for their education.
Thomas Edison State University participates in a number of federal and state financial aid programs. Eligible Thomas Edison State University students may receive Pell Grants or Federal Education Loans, such as the Subsidized Stafford Loan and the Unsubsidized Stafford Loan, for courses offered by the University. Eligible New Jersey residents also may tap a variety of state grant and loan programs. Students may use state aid to meet all or part of their college costs, provided they are taking at least 12 college credits per term.
For filing the FAFSA, the 2022-2023 FAFSA should be used if you plan on taking courses in terms from July 2022 through June 2023. The 2023-2024 FAFSA should be used if you plan on taking courses in terms from July 2023 through June 2024. The 202-2024 FAFSA is available as of October 1, 2022. If you plan on taking courses in both years, a FAFSA must be completed for both years. Certain State of NJ grants are available for students that complete their FAFSA as of April 15th of the previous academic year.
Students who wish to be awarded Financial Aid should have all required documentation on file two weeks before the start of the term:
