This is one of few relatively "affordable" Grad schools left in NJ. And this school is designed for those who are currently working full-time, and offers multiple Online Only programs. Most other public or state colleges in NJ costs have skyrocketed over the last 10 years, and there are too many hurdles (including really high costs for application) for new students to apply to some of them. This institution is one of the few left in NJ that understands the needs of working adults with families, and also keeps the costs as bearable as possible.
