PAYMENT/REGISTRATION TERMS AND CONDITIONS

The total bill is due on the due date noted on your first E-Bill unless you have enrolled in an approved payment plan (see details below for payment plan options).

If payment is not received by the due date, you may be subject to late fees, course cancellations, as well as having a hold placed on your account.  All unpaid accounts are forwarded to 3rd party collection agencies for further collections activities.

Please note: If your check payment is returned for non-sufficient funds to our bank for any reason, you will be charged a $30.00 returned check fee. If you have 3 or more NSF check payments your ability to pay by check will be revoked.

A.     Credit Card (Visa, Master Card, Discover and American Express)

Access the secure payment website via the Banner Student Self-Service link at: my.njit.edu.  A 2.75% non-refundable transaction fee will be added to each credit card transaction.

B.     Electronic Check

Access the secure payment website via the Banner Student Self-Service link at: my.njit.edu.  E-check payment is a no-fee alternative to credit card payment which directly debits your personal checking or savings account. Allow 2-3 banking days for the charge to hit your personal bank account. Please double check the routing and account number entered online to avoid returned check fees.

Please note:

If you have 3 or more returned checks, you will be unable to pay with a check.  Your payment must be made in cash, cashiers check, money order, or credit card.

D.  International Payment Information

The New Jersey Institute of Technology has partnered with peerTransfer to streamline the tuition payment process for our international students.  With peerTransfer, you are offered excellent foreign exchange rates, allowing you to pay in your home currency (in most cases) and save a significant amount of money, as compared to traditional banks.  You will also be notified via email when your payment is received by the school.

Go to: njit.peertransfer.com to begin the payment process. 

E.   Payment Plan Options

NJIT offers students the option to pay in 4, 3 or 2 installments for a flat fee of $100 per Semester. Payment plans are available when the 1st bill for the semester is generated.  To sign up for a payment plan please sign into Highlander Pipeline: mynjit.edu.

To view step by step instructions please view the  How to Tutorials link.

Sallie Mae is no longer used by NJIT for Payment Plans. All payment plans are now administered by NJIT.

F.     Financial Aid

Students who have completed a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) by the appropriate deadline, will be notified of their eligibility prior to the start of classes. A review of academic progress will be conducted and if it appears in good standing, aid will be packaged accordingly. Please make sure to review your Highlander Pipeline account periodically for updates on necessary steps you may need to take to assist with the completion of your aid packaging.

 Application of Financial Aid to Prior Year Charges
