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”.

*Given TCNJ’s recent campus closure due to the evolving threat of COVID-19, online payments are the only deposits that we can currently process remotely. Mailed payments won’t be processed until TCNJ administrative offices have reopened.*

Attention Parents of Accepted Students:

Don’t miss the opportunity to join the Office of Student Transitions’ Caffeine Chat for the Parents of Accepted Students on Saturday, April 4th at 9AM!

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

As a result of the evolving threat posed by the coronavirus, TCNJ is cancelling all visit opportunities and events through the end of our spring semester. Please note that the availability of visit opportunities after mid-May can still change as campus health and safety updates are shared with members of our campus community.*
