Admissions Policy for Undocumented Applicants

Eligible undocumented individuals may attend County College of Morris at a tuition rate based upon their verified residency status. To be eligible for in-county or out-of-county tuition rates, undocumented students must submit the following documents to the Office of Student Development and Enrollment Management:

  1. Verification of having attended a New Jersey high school for at least three (3) years;
  2. Verification of graduation from a New Jersey high school or received the equivalent of a New Jersey high school diploma;
  3. Filed an affidavit with the Office of Student Development and Enrollment Management stating that the student has filed an application to legalize his/her immigration status or will file such an application. The affidavit may be obtained from the Office of Student Development and Enrollment Management in the Student Community Center, Room 132.


Any undocumented individual who cannot provide the documents above will be charged the out-of-state tuition rate.

The college continues to reserve the right to refuse admission to any applicant where there is evidence that the individual would endanger the health or safety of himself/herself or others.

Undocumented students may apply for any major of study offered at CCM, but must understand that certain majors require criminal background checks and if a student does not possess a Social Security Number by that time, they will not be permitted to continue in that program.
