Facts & Statistics

Tips for Getting In
  • Have a strong GPA.
  • Have a strong SAT score (math is most important).
  • Have a talent-playing an instrument, publishing something, or being multilingual all show strong academic potential.
  • Have awards (music, art, or writing awards are very helpful).
  • Have good timing-the later the application is sent, the greater the chance it is denied.
  • Have well-rounded involvement in clubs, or hold leadership positions in clubs.
  • Showcase strong communication skills in the essays.
Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Difficulty and subject matter of classes
  • Guy-to-girl ratio (about four guys to every girl)
  • NJIT is between good and bad areas-and the school is worried about the bad areas.
  • What residents should bring to school
Interviews & Information Sessions
Open houses are a good way to get more information about NJIT. Open house programs include workshops and demonstrations, meeting with students and faculty, and learning more about the degree programs.
Campus Tours
Campus tours are offered Monday through Friday and take prospective students through the Campus Center, classrooms, dorms, the fitness center, and many other facilities. You can register for a campus tour online.
Overnight Visits
NJIT provides one overnight experience known as a Miniversity. All incoming freshmen are invited to this orientation event, where students attend brief lectures on campus safety and other such topics, while also playing team-building games.
