For students enrolled in TCNJ five-year programs, the online application is the only piece required for processing of entrance into the graduate year.

Please note that you cannot be registered for graduate courses in any semester following your intended undergraduate graduation until your undergraduate degree is fully posted by the Office of Records and Registration.
