Cost and Financial Aid

Tuition Aid Grants (TAG)

Tuition Aid Grants (TAG) are funded by the state of New Jersey and are administered through the New Jersey Higher Education Student Assistance Authority (NJHESAA). TAG provides assistance to needy full-time Monmouth University undergraduates who have been residents of New Jersey for at least twelve consecutive months prior to receiving the grant.  Annual award amounts for 2021-22 range from approximately $2,114 to $13,196 annually. To be considered for an award during the 2021-22 academic year, new students must have filed the FAFSA by September 15, 2021. Prior TAG recipients must have filed by April 15, 2021. Award renewal is dependent on the student filing the FAFSA within state deadlines, meeting satisfactory academic progress, and continuing to meet the eligibility requirements.
