Before you apply

  • Students are encouraged to file a FAFSA application (International students are exempt) to qualify for many of our scholarships.  It should take about 30 minutes of your time to file the online application. Students who do not file a FAFSA should still apply but will be eligible for fewer scholarships. Applicants who have not filed a FAFSA will only be considered for select Foundation Scholarships.  To complete your FAFSA application, visit https://fafsa.gov//
    If you have questions or require assistance, please contact our Financial Aid Office in the Administration Building (Bldg. B) at 973-300-2225.
  • Invite someone to submit a letter of recommendation on your behalf on AwardSpring.  You will not be able to ‘click’ submit on your application until the letter of recommendation has been received. Make sure you log back into your account periodically to check the status. Follow up with the person you have requested it from to ensure they received the email request.
  • After sending the request for the letter of recommendation, complete all other sections of the Application before the deadline.

We are proud to be able to present scholarships to so many deserving students. Scholarships help ease the financial burden and make education a reality for many students. We believe an investment in education pays high dividends for our community.
