BERKELEY COLLEGE STUDENTS OPPOSE CUTS TO THEIR STATE AID

 

 

Photo Caption: Berkeley College students protested Governor Corzine's proposed reduction in Tuition Assistance Grants (TAG) to students of proprietary colleges.  With these cuts they will not be able to complete their degrees. The average household income of students at Berkeley who receive this aid is less than $30,000 per year.  In the 2007-2008 fiscal year, more than 1,900 students received TAG aid at Berkeley College.  Thus far this year 2,153 students have received TAG aid.
