Last year alone, Seton Hall students received over $60 million dollars
in grant and scholarship aid, continuing the university’s commitment to
making college more affordable for students and their families.
Seton Hall University has taken another step in providing financial
relief to qualifying students by matching the NJ STARS II grant, which
provides aid to community college graduates who successfully transfer to a New Jersey four-year college or university to earn their bachelor's degree.
New Jersey’s Higher Education Student Assistance Authority offers
STARS II students at private institutions a grant of up to $2,500.
Beginning this fall, Seton Hall will match this grant for incoming
transfer students who were already part of the NJ Stars program. This
award will be in addition to the already generous scholarship and grant
opportunities available to transfer students at The Hall.
Seton Hall’s STARS II match initiative indicates a deep commitment
to serving the often overlooked transfer student population. “Seton Hall
has put a lot of effort and attention on serving our transfer students
and ensuring their success,” says Dr. Alyssa McCloud, Vice President for
Enrollment Management. “This is evidenced not only by this additional
financial commitment, but also in our generous transfer credit policies
and our newly created Academic Success and Transfer Student Center,
which is designed to ensure students have a seamless transition and
personal guidance for transfer credit review and academic advisement.”
The announcement of this new funding is Seton Hall’s latest action
focused on providing greater affordability and access for students.
Earlier this year the University also announced its Public Tuition Rate
program, which offered high achieving incoming freshmen the opportunity
to enroll for the same tuition rate as Rutgers University. Both programs
not only demonstrate a commitment to supporting students and making
college more affordable, but also serve to reward and recognize high
“This initiative will also give New Jersey community college
students more options and opportunities for affordable education in a
setting with smaller classes and better access to faculty,” says Dr.
McCloud. “It is important to provide New Jersey community college
students the opportunity to continue their education in-state, in an
affordable manner so they can continue to contribute to the vitality and prosperity of our state.”
