Financial Aid

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 College participates in a number of federal and state financial aid programs. Eligible Thomas Edison State College 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 College. 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.

Financial Aid Shopping Sheet
Thomas Edison State College provides two versions of the Financial Aid Shopping Sheet (FASS). The FASS is designed to help you estimate the cost of attending Thomas Edison State College during the current Academic Year, and identify potential sources of financial aid so you can easily compare Thomas Edison State College with other institutions and make an informed decision about where to attend school. This tool is provided as part of Thomas Edison State College’s commitment to the Principles of Excellence under Presidential Executive Order 13607.

The first version of the Financial Aid Shopping Sheet is available to any prospective, applicant, or enrolled student. A second version is available to currently enrolled students via your Online Student Services account and will display detailed financial aid information if you have been awarded such.
