New Jersey City University (NJCU) is offering tuition-free study for the Fall 2019 semester to college students in the Bahamas whose studies have been disrupted by the island-wide devastation caused recently by Hurricane Dorian. 

Visiting students will have the opportunity to continue studies at NJCU for the Spring 2019 semester and beyond until they are able to return to their home institution.  This plan 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 pleased to provide the opportunity for students in affected areas 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 Dorian.”

Dr. Henderson added, “We welcome students to NJCU from the Bahamas who are in need because of the unimaginable devastation caused by this natural disaster. NJCU is offering those visiting students the opportunity to learn and achieve. This initiative is in keeping with the University’s mission.”

For information about this study opportunity contact NJCU Director of Admissions Jose Balda at jbalda@njcu.edu or call 201-200-3381.
