    Freshman Application Process

    You are considered a freshman applicant if you are starting college for the first time or if you have attended college but have fewer than 12 college-level credits. Please review our Application Checklist to determine what materials you will need for your NJCU application.

    You may complete the college admissions application online.

    Opportunity Scholarship Program

    Low-income residents who are capable and motivated, but lack adequate preparation for college study, may be eligible for the Opportunity Scholarship Program, assistance made possible through the Educational Opportunity Fund. To apply for OSP, please indicate your interest on your application.
