Here. Education is a great value.

At Montclair State, we believe that education should be accessible to everyone. That’s why, while the cost of college continues to skyrocket nationwide, we work diligently to ensure that our tuition remains affordable. It’s also why our Financial Aid Department is unwavering in its commitment to secure financial assistance for all who need it. More than 80 percent of Montclair State University students received some form of grants, loans and/or scholarships.

A Montclair State education at our tuition rates affords you the very best return on your investment. So much so that Money Magazine gave us its highest rating on its list of “Colleges that add the most value” which was primarily based on graduation rates, earnings and student loan repayment. Montclair State received an A grade among 50 other colleges and universities across the nation.

Affordable Fees and Tuition.

New Jersey residents pay $13,073 per year for full-time tuition and fees and out-of-state residents pay approximately $21,055 per year. Average room and board charges for the school year are $13,342, depending on which residence hall, type of (residence hall) room and meal plan are selected.

Consider this.

To ensure students and parents are well prepared for any and all additional costs that come with attending a university, we’ve put together a list to guide you through.

Financial Aid and Scholarships.

We commit to securing the best in loans, grants, and other forms of financial assistance. New Jersey students have the opportunity to earn merit scholarships through the new Presidential Scholars Program.
