New Jersey Revised Statutes § 18a:72b-18 - Payment To Institutions; Formula; Distribution Of Funds

18A:72B-18. Payment to institutions; formula; distribution of funds
4. The State Treasurer, subject to the availability of appropriations, is authorized to contract with eligible independent colleges and universities in this State to provide educational services to New Jersey students. Payment to the institutions shall be based upon the number of full-time equivalent New Jersey undergraduates enrolled during the pre-budget year in the independent institutions multiplied by 25% of the level of direct per student support for the State college sector during the pre-budget year. The total funding generated by the preceding formula shall be distributed as follows:

a. Ten percent of this total shall be divided equally among the eligible institutions. These "designated" amounts shall be awarded to each institution except in any instance where the amount of dollars designated for a particular institution under this section exceeds the total amount to be awarded to that institution under subsections b. and c. of this section. In such instances, the funds designated under subsection a. shall be reduced to equal the total of subsections b. and c., which shall be the amount awarded to the institution under this section. The difference between the amount designated and the amount awarded under this section shall be returned to the department.

b. Thirty-five percent shall be distributed on the basis of New Jersey students who received State financial aid or aid administered by such institutions of $1,000.00 or more, in all cases exclusive of loans, during the pre-budget year.

c. Fifty-five percent shall be distributed on the basis of New Jersey full-time equivalent students, as herein defined, enrolled in such institutions during the pre-budget year.

The funds granted under this act may be used by the institutions for any purposes which they deem to be appropriate to maintaining or enhancing the quality of the academic offerings available to New Jersey students, except for purposes of sectarian instruction, the construction or maintenance of sectarian facilities, or for any other sectarian purpose or activity. For the purposes of this act the number of full-time equivalent students at the eight State colleges for the 1979-80 academic year is 54,380.
