NJ STARS Workshops and Information Sessions

2017 NJ STARS Workshops

Why Should I Attend an NJ STARS Workshop? 

The next financial aid deadline is October 15th!  NJ STARS students’ financial aid status must be complete for both the FAFSA at Bergen Community College (Federal aid) and HESAA (State of New Jersey aid)  before tuition is be paid by NJ STARS scholarships.   Students who are complete after October 15th but before the November 15th deadline will still qualify, but tuition will be paid at a later date. Students who are not complete by the FAFSA, BCC and HESAA deadlines will be responsible for paying their tuition.

At the workshops, students will access their Bergen Community College and HESAA student portals and receive an overview of their financial aid information and learn what they must do to ensure their college and HESAA status is complete before the deadlines.  Students should be able to login to both student portals before attending a workshop.

Please RSVP to a workshop with the date and time to [email protected] or call 201-689-7055 so you can be notified in the event a date or time must be changed or cancelled, and to be sure there are enough computers available for everyone.  And feel free to bring a parent or parents!

All workshops will be held in S-352 in the Pitkin Education Center as follows:

    • Wednesday, Sept. 20th:  2:00 pm to 3:30 pm
    • Thursday, Sept. 21st:  12:00 noon to 1:30 pm OR 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm
