The NJ STARS II Program is a continuation of the NJ STARS Program that provides successful NJ Stars students from New Jersey county community colleges with funding to transfer to a New Jersey four year college or university to earn a bachelor’s degree. The amount of the NJ STARS II award for the first two semesters of study at a New Jersey four-year public college or university will be based on a student’s cumulative grade point average (GPA) upon graduation from a county college. NJ Stars recipients at a community college, who graduated from a county college with a GPA equal to or greater than 3.25, beginning enrollment at a four year New Jersey public institution may receive up to $1,250 per semester. The amount of the award for the third and fourth semesters of study will be based on the cumulative GPA attained at the four-year public institution at the start of the third semester of study. The NJ STARS II award will be based on tuition only, except for Tuition Aid Grant recipients who will receive NJ STARS II awards based on tuition and approved fees. The amount of the NJ STARS II award will be determined after all other State and Federal grants and scholarships are applied to these charges. The State funds 100% of the NJ STARS II award. Students will be responsible for any remaining balance. NJ STARS II awards are dependent upon annual State appropriations.
