3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I wish that tuitition for online students did not include so many hidden fees, but I suppose it's not as bad as it could be.

2 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: It's hard to receive any grants from my school, as far as I know. My family doesn't have much money, but I have never received any financial aid other than a suggestion to take out a loan.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: currently had a few problems accessing my nj stars scholarship. when i called the school to get more information, i was told something different than what someone in person told me.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is extremely affordable, especially for young college students without a steady income. The payment plans are flexible and the staff is helpful.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Taking advantage of the low cost compared to other schools was a great idea.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

When students at Ocean County College are interested in financial aid, they must first register for a pin by either going to www.pin.ed.gov or by creating a pin when they fill out their FAFSA. After students create a pin, they must then file for their Free Application for Federal Student Aid, also known as FAFSA; this can be done by going online to www.fafsa.ed.gov. Students must make sure to put Ocean County College in the college choice section and then enter the school code (002624).

Within several days of filing the FAFSA online, students will receive, either through email or mail, the Student Aid Report, also known as SAR. If students are New Jersey residents, they should receive a New Jersey Student Eligibility Notice (SEN) within several weeks, notifying them of their eligibility for Tuition Aid Grant, also known as TAG. Finally, within several weeks, students should receive an official award notification from Ocean County College. The award letter will be posted on Ocean County College's WebAdvisor and/or through the mail. In addition, if a student follows this process, then the financial aid process should be a piece of cake, unless the school forgets to process your information in its system.
