A Message From Dear Student, Congratulations on choosing to further your education. As Governor, I appreciate the important role a highly educated workforce plays in ensuring New Jersey's global competitiveness and overall success. I also know that today, higher education is an important step toward achieving your individual dreams and goals. As you start exploring your options beyond high school, I hope you will consider one of the many schools in New Jersey. I am proud that New Jersey's colleges and universities lead the nation in educational excellence. Our state boasts more than 50 public and private institutions, numerous career and technical schools, enrolls over 410,000 students statewide, and prepares students every day for success in the working world. As you consider how to pay for your education, New Jersey has been among one of the top states in the country in aid dollars available for full-time students. The New Jersey Higher Education Student Assistance Authority is here to help make higher and technical education more affordable for you and your family. As you invest in your education now, remember it will have a lasting, positive impact for you, your family and New Jersey. Good luck in your pursuit of higher education.
