To qualify as a full or part-time freshman, you must have graduated from high
school (or earned a G.E.D. diploma.)
If you have attended college and earned fewer than 12 college-level credits at
a college or university, you will be considered as a freshman. Our admissions
policy is competitive and we want to carefully review your high school course
work. Some of the most important information is your cumulative GPA, rank in
class (where available), your SAT or ACT scores, and your admissions essay that
details your motivation for attending NJCU.
Transfer Applicants If you have graduated from high school and have completed at least 12
college level credits at a college or university,you may apply as a transfer
student. If you have graduated from an approved New Jersey community college
with an A.A. or A.S., or A.F.A. degree or four year college with an B.A. or B.S., and have
earned a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 (on a 4.0 scale), you
will be able to transfer a block of credits, thereby satisfying the
University's general studies requirements including the All University Requirements.
All degree credits completed toward the associate degree will count toward the
requirements for a bachelor's degree at New Jersey City University. Our
admissions policy is competitive, and we will want to review your previous
college course work and your motivation to attend NJCU.
Students who have not enrolled at NJCU for three or more semesters are required
to reapply for admission. If you have attended any colleges or Universities
since you last attended NJCU, you will need to provide official transcripts
from those institutions to the Office of University Admissions at NJCU.
