NJ Stars

The New Jersey Student Tuition Assistance Reward Scholarship (NJ STARS) Program is an initiative created by the State of New Jersey that provides New Jersey’s highest achieving students (students who graduate in the top 15% of their high school class) with free tuition at their home county college for 12-18 college-level credits in the fall and spring semesters for up to five semesters.


To see if you qualify, view the NJ STARS Factsheet for eligibility requirements.

High School Graduates

High school graduates who qualified for the NJ STARS program between 2017 and 2019 but did not attend Camden County College full-time may still be eligible if they enroll in their home county community college within five semesters following high school graduation, even if they attended another college or university. Fall 2019 is the last semester of eligibility for 2017 high school graduates.
