New Jersey Public College-Operated Schools for Students with Disabilities

The schools listed in this section are identified in New Jersey Administrative Code 6A:14-7.1(a), under the broad category of receiving schools, and represent a type separate from that of approved private schools for the disabled. They are provided under the auspices of New Jersey public institutes of higher education. Public college-operated programs represent one of many placement options public school districts may consider in meeting individualized education needs of students.

Consistent with regulations governing all receiving schools, public college-operated programs must comply with federal and state special education regulations.  Compliance monitoring is carried out by the Department of Education. Tuition rates, however, are determined solely by the individual school and not by the Department of Education.

For additional information about these special education programs, please contact the schools directly, at the addresses and telephone numbers provided.
