Complete Your degree at William Paterson University William Paterson University is proud to participate in a new statewide initiative, the NJ Scholar Corps Program.

This program is open to all New Jersey students currently studying at an accredited four-year, out-of-state university or college. In addition to earning your degree at one of New Jersey’s outstanding public universities, you will have the opportunity to be involved in service activities focused on revitalizing and rebuilding our local communities. We want to help you come home to New Jersey and study at William Paterson University. We offer: Institutional grants that reduce tuition by up to 25% for the first semester. Guaranteed on-campus housing in our residence halls; a 50% discount on residence life where capacity exists. A streamlined transfer application process and application fee waiver. Guaranteed acceptance of all credits earned with a grade of C or better at an accredited four-year out-of-state university or college. Access to the University’s scholarship and financial aid programs. The opportunity to serve our local communities and help rebuild New Jersey through the University’s new NJ Scholar Corps digital badge program, part of William Paterson’s overall commitment to civic engagement as a core value. Students will participate in eight (8) community service/civic engagement activities to complete the badge, which may be used as a requirement for induction into the WP LEADS Honor Society. Specific details will depend, of course, on the timeline for re-opening our state.
