The Tuition Aid Grant (TAG) provides New Jersey State residents, who have demonstrated financial need, with awards that offset all or a portion of tuition charges. Recipients must also meet all other state eligibility requirements listed in the State Programs section. TAG awards are renewable annually. Students may receive the award for nine (9) semesters based on continued eligibility. The amount of an individual's grant varies based upon the student's need, the cost of attendance, and available funding. TAG award values are determined annually in July by the New Jersey Higher Education Student Assistance Authority (HESAA). Students receive notification of their potential award from HESAA. Award eligibility is subject to verification of all reported information and certification by your financial aid officer that you meet all programs requirements.
