About MeadowlandCollege

The main campus of MeadowlandCollege is located on Farm College Road in Princeton, New Jersey. MeadowlandCollege grants four types of degrees: Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, Bachelor of Arts, and Bachelor of Science.

About Admission to MeadowlandCollege

Anyone with a high school diploma is eligible to attend. Degree students are those enrolled in a program of study leading to a degree. As a degree student, you may attend part time or full time during the day, evening, or a combination of both.

Upon receipt of your application, the Admissions Office will schedule you for a basic reading, language arts, and arithmetic skills placement test. If, however, you attended another college and have at least 15 credits, the placement test is waived. Bring proof of college credits (student transcript) with you on the date of your skills placement test appointment. At the time of waiver, or after the test, you will be given the name of a counselor who will evaluate results and/or assist in course selection. After meeting with a counselor, you are eligible to register.

About Tuition, Fees, and Payment

The application fee is $50 and is non-refundable. Tuition is $200 per credit. You may choose to pay in full upon registration or defer payment. All payments must be made no later than August 8. Payment is only accepted in the form of cash or check.

About Senior Citizens

Senior citizens (65 or older) who enroll at MeadowlandCollege on a seat-available basis are eligible for a waiver of tuition.

About Dropping, Adding, or Changing Courses and Refunds

All changes on your registration schedule must be made in person in the Records and Registration Office by submitting the change on a Drop/Add form. If you are adding a course, the form must be presented to a counselor in order to receive approval to register for the new course. You may drop/add for fall term courses through September 10. A 100% refund will be granted only for courses officially dropped before the first day of the term. After the first day of the term, the refunds decrease as follows: 80% refund from September 11 through September 18 and a 60% Refund from September 19 through September 26. After these final dates, no refunds will be granted. A 100% refund of tuition will be automatically mailed to you if MeadowlandCollege cancels your course and you do not register for another course in its place.
