NJCU Invites Students in Hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands to Continue Studies Tuition-Free

Scholarships and Housing to be Provided 
New Jersey City University is offering tuition-free study this sesmester to college students in Puerto Rico and the United States Virgin Islands whose studies have been disrupted by the island-wide devastation cause recently by Hurricane Maria and Hurricane Irma.

Visiting students will have the opportunity to continue studies at NJCU in the Spring 2018 semester on a plan that will reduce the usual out-of-state tuition cost to in-state tuition fully covered by a scholarship. NJCU also will provide students with a housing scholarship of $2,000 per semester.

NJCU President Sue Henderson announced the initiative, stating, "The NJCU community is supplementing its efforts to provide material resources to those in need by extending to students in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands the opportunity to move forward with their higher education and prepare for careers that will help to rebuild their lives and their homelands after the destruction caused by Hurricane Maria and Hurricane Irma."

Dr. Henderson added, "We welcome students to NJCU from Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands who are in need because of the unimaginable devastation caused by hurricanes. NJCU is offereing those visiting students the opportunity to learn and achieve. This initiative is in keeping with our University's mission."
