Today, New Jersey works hard in order to help the local undocumented immigrants with their education. Previously, there were $1.6 million spent to help send 513 students. How to apply? That’s what the Typical Student team will tell you about.


The Program





So, in fall 2018, NJ created the program to help immigrants with their tuition. To take a part, students had to apply for the first wase until September 15. However, it’s still possible to apply for the spring semester. Students apply by filling out the New Jersey Alternative Financial Aid Application.


Who Can Apply?





To make a long story short, this program allows NJ students who live in the country illegally to apply for college financial aid. To do it, you should meet the following criteria:


  • Attended a New Jersey high school for at least three years

  • Male students have registered for the Selective Service
