Salem Community College is one of 13 New Jersey colleges offering the Community College Opportunity Grant (CCOG). The state announced on September 27, 2018 that qualifying students who attend Salem Community College will be eligible through this pilot program to have tuition and certain fees paid for the spring 2019 semester.

Students with an adjusted gross income of $45,000 or less and who are enrolled for at least 6 credits at Salem Community College in spring 2019 will be eligible to receive “last-dollar” CCOG grants, which will cover remaining costs of tuition and approved education fees after all other financial aid grant awards have been applied. Students will be required to maintain satisfactory academic progress to remain eligible.
