Instant Decision Day for Transfers Set for Nov. 6, 2007

There’s still time to transfer for Spring 2008. Once again, NJIT’s Admissions Office will host its popular Instant Decision Day for transfer students Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2007, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Counselors will be available to review applicants’ transcripts and offer instant admissions decisions.

“We just ask you to follow a few tips to accelerate your admissions process,” said Stephen Eck, NJIT director of university admissions.  Bring a copy of your official college transcript(s), list of courses in progress and for non-U.S. citizens living in the U.S. a photocopy of your visa or permanent resident cards. To obtain more information about Instant Transfer Day or transferring to NJIT, call 1-800-925-NJIT or visit http://www.njit.edu/admissions/undergraduate/applying/transfers.php.

Transfers will find new programs in bioinformatics, communication, concrete industry management technology and industrial design. NJIT also offers teacher certification in math, sciences, and liberal arts disciplines in cooperation with Rutgers University-Newark.

NJIT has expanded offerings in the health professions with new programs in physical therapy and physician assistant.  Both programs allows students to complete a six-year program leading to a bachelor of science degree, a doctorate in physical therapy or a master of science as a physician assistant which is offered in conjunction with the School of Health-Related Professions at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of NJ.

Thanks to NJIT's new Campus Center, students will find new facilities for dining  and student organizations, plus a two-story student lounge, convenience store, six-lane bowling alley and computer center. More than 1400 students live in four co-ed residence halls on NJIT’s 47-acre campus. The newly-landscaped campus features spacious, shaded outdoor lounge areas.

Approximately 80 percent of NJIT students receive some form of financial aid http://www.njit.edu/admissions/undergrad/undergradfinancialaid.php.  Scholarship opportunities for transfer students include the Construction Roundtable Scholarship, Phi Theta Kappa Scholarship, Engineering Technology Presidential Scholarship and the Albert Dorman Honors College Scholarship.

NJIT has articulation and/or joint agreements with most NJ community colleges  http://www.njit.edu/admissions/undergraduate/applying/community-colleges.php. The program allows a student to enroll at a community college and complete the appropriately designated associate degree program. Students may then transfer to NJIT to complete their bachelor's degree. Admission is guaranteed for students who complete their degree.

NJIT offers a flexible course schedule. In addition to courses offered during the day, students can choose to enroll in evening and online courses or pursue a degree through the NJIT Weekend University.

Transferees to NJIT must have completed at least 15 semester hours, includingEnglish composition and mathematics. Pre-calculus is required for most majors. See more at: http://www.njit.edu/admissions/undergraduate/applying/credit-transfer.php.
