Support for College Students
The New Jersey Office of the Secretary of Higher Education (OSHE) is committed to students' overall wellbeing as well as their academic success. We understand that non-tuition costs like food, childcare, and housing can impact the well-being and success of college students. We created this webpage to connect college students with resources and programs that are available in New Jersey. Our goal is to help connect students at colleges and universities throughout the state with available resources to address their needs and help keep them on track to earning their college credential.
