Highest scores obtained on the SAT or ACT are considered by NJIT, using the ‘math + critical reading' composite, with an expected average of 1190 on the SAT. Those with scores below 1100 are advised to retake in a bid to raise their mark.

Scholarships & Funding

Scholarships & Funding

For international students, finance can be a major concern. As a result, NJIT offers a number of funding opportunities including private loans and scholarships to lessen financial burden. Much of the financial aid provided to international students comes via scholarships or private loans.

Private agencies and lending institutions, such as banks, offer private loans, rather than them coming via the university or federal government. Any international student with an eligible U.S. citizen or permanent resident co-signer is able to apply for these.

NJIT does offer scholarship awards to lessen the need for further financial assistance. These include the International Presidential Scholarship, an award minus the out-of-state surcharge, which students must apply for with admission to be considered. There is also the Albert Dorman Honors College Scholarship. This is specifically for those who have gained admission to the Albert Dorman Honours College who may qualify for additional financial assistance.
