New Jersey transfer students can dramatically reduce their college costs by up to 100 percent at Rutgers University–Camden. The first of its kind among New Jersey’s public four-year colleges and universities, this innovative program can help you finish your Bachelor's degree with little to no debt!

How It Works

Reduce your college costs by up to 100 percent!

The program closes the gap between federal and state sources of financial support and the balance of tuition and the general campus fee. Rutgers–Camden automatically applies the Road to Success grant. The grant is applied to the remaining costs after any other need-based federal and/or state aid have been applied, based on family adjusted gross income (AGI):

  • $60,000 or less: receive a grant covering 100 percent of tuition and the general campus fee.
  • $60,001 to $80,000: receive a grant covering 75 percent of remaining tuition and the general campus fee.
  • $80,001 to $100,000: receive a grant covering 50 percent of remaining tuition and the general campus fee.

Criteria for Annual Renewal

Students may renew their grant annually provided that they:

  1. successfully complete 30 credit hours in an academic year;
  2. remain in good academic standing; and
  3. complete the FAFSA every year.

How to Apply

Applying for the Road to Success grant is easy.

  1. Apply as a transfer applicant for fall 2018.
  2. Complete the 2018-2019 FAFSA.

There is no separate application for the program. Applicants who meet the criteria will be holistically reviewed and are automatically considered when they apply and are admitted for admission to Rutgers University–Camden.

Who Is Eligible?

The program is open to students who have attended a New Jersey community college and enroll as transfer undergraduate students on a full-time basis (at least 30 credits per academic year*) in degree programs on the Rutgers University–Camden campus. All transfer applicants are holistically reviewed based on your application. (*Please note that developmental courses that are successfully passed will be counted toward a student’s 30 earned credits per academic year requirement.)

Residents of the State of New Jersey who are also U.S. citizens (or legal permanent U.S. residents) are eligible.

This program is not transferrable to other Rutgers campuses or off-campus Rutgers programs.

Rutgers University–Camden continues to offer merit scholarships and other financial aid for students not eligible for the Road to Success program.
