Altenkirch and Union County Vocational-Technical Schools Superintendent Thomas J. Bistocchi. The program allows students entering their freshman year of high school to elect to take certain courses that NJIT faculty have pre-approved for credit. High school students who successfully complete all conditions of the program while in high school will be admitted to NJIT and can participate in a number of majors and colleges including offerings of the Newark College of Engineering, College of Science and Liberal Arts, the School of Management, the College of Computing Sciences and the Albert Dorman Honors College. “This is an exciting opportunity for students at the Academy and Magnet high schools and we are pleased to extend these offerings,” said Joel Bloom, vice president for Academic and Student Services at NJIT. Dr. Bistocchi offered, "It is an opportunity for excellent students to stay in state and get an quality education at a highly ranked national university, NJIT." Similar joint advanced standing admissions programs are already in place between NJIT and Bergen County Academies and Morris County Academies.
