Attend PCCC Tuition-Free in FALL 2021 – SPRING 2022
The Community College Opportunity Grant (CCOG) is a financial assistance award that enables qualifying Passaic County New Jersey residents to attend PCCC tuition-free in fall and spring semesters. The grant will cover any tuition and fees for the Fall and Spring semesters that are not already covered by the student’s other financial aid. There is no separate application. If you already completed the FAFSA® or the NJ Alternative Financial Aid Application for NJ Dreamers, you are automatically being considered for this state aid. Students who plan to begin their studies in Fall 2021 (classes begin in September), must complete the 2021-2022 FAFSA®.
