Student Needs

As a reminder, fall students are eligible to complete a CARES Act application here and receive financial assistance to cover expenses such as rent, utilities, and food if you have needs as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you need assistance completing the application or have additional questions, please contact our social worker LeeAnn Trott at or 908-709-7139. 


We are here to help. If you or your family is having difficulty, please contact Karlene Rambaran in HR at 908-709-7144.

I wish you all a happy and healthy Thanksgiving. Please keep in mind that Governor Murphy is limiting indoor gatherings to 10 people. I know Thanksgiving is a holiday made for gathering with our loved ones, but we all need to think about our plans in light of the new restrictions due to the pandemic and make smart choices to keep ourselves, our loved ones, and our community safe.

Be well and take care of yourselves.


Dr. Margaret M. McMenamin
