Still Time for NJ STARS Students to Register for Fall Classes

July 23, 2009

High school students who qualified for NJ STARS scholarships still have time to register for fall classes at Atlantic Cape Community College.

NJ STARS-Student Tuition Assistance Reward Scholarship-provides high school students graduating in the top 15 percent of their class with free tuition at their local community college. Students from Atlantic and Cape May counties who meet all criteria will have up to two years from the date of high school graduation to enroll and begin using the scholarship at ACCC.

ACCC's transfer agreements with four-year colleges and universities ensure a seamless transition to a four-year bachelor's degree program. Students can save $20,000 to $80,000 on the cost of a four-year school by spending their first two years at ACCC.
