Who Studies at NJIT?


More than 7,100 undergraduate and nearly 3,000 graduate students from 33 states and more than 100 countries attend NJIT. It ranks eighth in the nation for diversity and is consistently listed as one of the leading schools for graduating minority students.

Statistics aside, NJIT students are innovators and entrepreneurs—the world’s future architects, engineers, medical researchers, and business leaders. Some are athletes, some are activists, and some are artists. All appreciate the role that technology plays in every aspect of our society.

Off campus, thousands of students advance their studies and their careers through our flexible and affordable distance and continuing education programs—earning bachelor's degrees, master's degrees, and graduate certificates, or just taking a class here and there to stay sharp.

On campus, NJIT students have access to more than 90 clubs (ranging from the Amateur Radio Club to Habitat for Humanity) and 21 on-campus fraternities and sororities.

Last year NJIT received 4,327 incoming freshman applications, out of which 2,842 were admitted and 1,084 enrolled. The middle 50th percentile of those enrolled had an SAT composite ranging from 1070 to 1250, and 20 percent were in the top 10th of their high school class.
