I’ve Been Accepted

Congratulations on your acceptance to TCNJ!

We understand that you have a huge decision to make, one that involves several factors and can generate many questions to answer before the national deposit deadline of May 1. Please use this website as a resource and don’t hesitate to contact members of our community; we are here to make it as easy as possible!  If you’re ready to submit a deposit and enroll at TCNJ, log in to PAWS on the MYAPP STATUS page, click on “Self Service” and then “Accept/Decline Admissions”

We hope to see you on campus for Accepted Students Day on Saturday, April 4, and wish you the best of luck in making your final decision. Go Lions!

Financial Aid

An undergraduate degree is a big investment in your future.  Fortunately, TCNJ is consistently recognized as one of the best colleges for your money.  The Guide to Financial Aid at TCNJ, below, highlights important information – and a timeline – for all accepted students who are exploring ways to fund their education.  If you haven’t done so already, submit your FAFSA as soon as possible and include TCNJ’s Federal School Code: 002642.  Estimated award letters will be posted by April 1 for those students who submit the FAFSA and include all required information. **Check your TCNJ portal to make sure all required information has been submitted in order to be reviewed for financial aid eligibility.

TCNJ is honored to enroll our military veterans.  Please review this First-Year Student or Transfer Student website for more information about the various funding sources available for veterans who attend TCNJ.

Campus Tours

Campuses look very different as an accepted student, so visiting your top choice schools now can be extremely helpful when making your final decision. The Office of Admissions will be running tours through the end of April, and you can view available dates and register via the link below:
