Entry requirements

For students from United States

Students must have completed a high school graduates who have not previously attended college may apply for admission as freshmen.

For international students

All students who apply to NJIT must submit an official high school transcript in English. When evaluating your application for undergraduate admission, we are interested in understanding how you challenged yourself relative to the curriculum that was available at your school and the trends in your performance - especially your grades in math, science, and English.

Your completed coursework should include English Composition, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Chemistry and Physics. We also consider the GPA that is indicated on your high school transcript. We look for students in the top 25 percent of their class. For schools that don't use a ranking system, we consider a 3.0 GPA or higher to be equivalent.

Doctoral Degree

To be considered for acceptance into a doctoral degree program, you are required to have an appropriate academic background as described by the individual Ph.D. program and evidence of a high level of achievement, including GPA in your prior studies.

English Language Requirement:

The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), Duolingo or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is required of all applicants whose first language is not English. The minimum score required is 79 for the Internet-based TOEFL exam, 213 for the computer-based TOEFL exam, 550 for the paper TOEFL exam, 6.0 for the IELTS exam or 100 for the Duolingo exam. In addition, you will take a placement test in English Composition when you arrive on campus.

*There may be different IELTS requirements depending on your chosen course.
