Open House at NJIT for Part-Time Learners Set for July 15

Adult learners looking to start or re-start meaningful 21st century careers will not want to miss NJIT’s upcoming open house July 15 from 5-7:30 p.m. (EST). Geared to busy adults, the open house will feature and demonstrate specially selected NJIT academic and training programs structured for weekend learning and/or online learning. The event will take place in Fenster Hall, room 100, on the NJIT campus. 

On-the-spot admissions decisions can be made. 

Financial aid presentations scheduled at 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. will focus exclusively on part- time and full-time options for adult students. Anyone at a distance or who is unable to travel to campus can take advantage of the simultaneous Online Chat from 5-7:30 p.m. Those logging on to the chat from out-of-state will learn about NJIT’s new graduate online tuition, a rate which makes the cost to attend this nationally ranked science and technology university attractive.
