The Exchange/Study Abroad Program is available to undergraduate students with a sophomore, junior or senior standing and graduate students. Undergraduate students must have a grade-point average of at least 3.0. Graduate students must have at least a 3.5. The study abroad period can be for a summer term, one semester or a full academic year. At some institutions, courses are taught in English. Therefore, proficiency in a foreign language is recommended, but not necessary for all placements.
During the exchange period, students must maintain their registration (MR INTL) and status at NJIT and pay NJIT tuition and fees. Because students are registered at NJIT, all financial aid, loans and scholarships are applicable. If arrangements are made through a 3rd party provider, student payment is made directly to the 3rd party provider, registration is maintained (MR REG), and all aspects of financial aid may not be available for disbursement.
Housing and living expenses vary depending on the availability of accommodations in the host country. The costs are not expected to exceed those at NJIT. Airfare is additional.
The application includes a one-page essay in the language of the host country when instruction is not in English.
