By keeping tuition and fees low and working with each student to provide generous financial aid packages in the form of grants and scholarships (not loans), Middlesex College students typically do not have to take out loans, which must be repaid, to get a college degree.
“Going to Middlesex College was honestly the best decision. Doing well there, along with the help of financial aid advisors, helped me get a lot of scholarships. I graduated debt-free, which allowed me to focus on my academics for the next two years of my life.”

Apply for Financial Aid
Getting financial aid starts with submitting the financial aid application known as “FAFSA.” To get started:
- Create your federal student ID, which you will need to open, sign, and correct your application.
(Note: If you are a dependent student, one of your parents will also need to create an ID.)
- Go to FAFSA.gov and start your FAFSA application.
- At the confirmation page of the FAFSA application, select “Start your state application” link to apply for New Jersey state-based aid.
Our financial aid staff can help you complete your FAFSA and apply for grants, loans or work-study. We offer one-on-one “FAFSA on Demand” appointments and free FAFSA workshops.
