Student Handbook

Bulletin Boards

Departmental boards throughout the university are the property of specific departments and may not be used without their approval.  Bulletin boards relating to student organizations and events are in the Campus Center.  Before posting, announcements, posters, and flyers must be taken to the Information Desk for authorization.  Please refer to the section on Events.

Change of Address

Changes of address can be completed via the Registrar's website. All bills and grades are mailed to the permanent home address.  Students living in the residence halls or in off-campus housing can receive other school-related information at their permanent address by completing a change of address form via the web.

Discrimination

NJIT does not discriminate on the basis of gender, sexual orientation, race, age, religion, national origin, or handicap in its education programs, activities, or employment policies.  Inquiries regarding compliance may be directed to the Dean of Students Office at (973) 596-3466, the office of Compliance and Training, (973) 596-3133 or (973) 596-3134, or to the Director of the Office for Civil Rights, Department of Health, Education and Welfare, Washington, DC.

Dress Code

The university has no specific dress code.  Members of the university community are expected to be responsible enough to decide appropriately upon their own attire.  Students will be expected to wear suitable attire for placement interviews and on other occasions where business attire is customary.

Fax Service

Fax service is available at the Campus Center from 9 A.M. to 4:40 P.M. Monday - Friday.  This service is restricted to the Continental USA.  The cost to send a fax is $3 minimum for up to 3 pages (including cover sheet), and $1 for each additional page.  In addition, incoming faxes for students cost $0.50 per page; students can pick them up at the Campus Center Administrative Office, Room 105.  The Fax number is (973) 596-2974.

Gambling and Raffles

New Jersey Law (N.J.S.A. 2C: 37-2) prohibits the promotion of gambling; therefore, the promotion of gambling is prohibited on university property.  State Law (N.J.S.A. 5:8-52) requires that an application must be submitted to the Newark City Clerk before a raffle is conducted.  Any questions regarding gambling/raffles should be directed to the Director of the Campus Center (973) 596-3601.

Pets

Animals are NOT permitted in university buildings unless the approval is granted by the director  of physical plant.  Seeing eye-dogs are exempt from this policy.
