Prescribed Study Students

Prescribed study students are non- degree seeking J-1 students coming to NJIT for a short period of time. Prescribed study students arrive at different times throughout the year. On their first day at NJIT they must check in with the Office of Global Initiatives. Prescribed study students do not have to attend orientation. 


How to check in:

1. Contact your OGI adviser at least a week before traveling to the U.S. to schedule an appointment on your first day (you can find their name on the DS-2019). 

2. Bring your passport and DS-2019 to the scheduled meeting. 

3. Medical clearance: You must submit two medical forms directly to the Health Services Office : Immunization Form and Physical Exam Form

New Jersey State law mandates that Health and Immunization forms be submitted before you can register for classes. If you have any questions, please contact Health Services at +1 (973) 596-3621, or send fax to +1 (973) 596-0047.  You are advised to have the required forms completed by your physician before you depart your home country, since the cost of a physical exam in the U.S. and immunizations are very expensive.
