    Transfer Student Information Upon acceptance to New Jersey City University, new transfer students must send a $50 tuition deposit to confirm your intention to enroll. Upon receipt of this deposit, your academic transcripts will be evaluated. As a transfer student, you have the option to expedite your credit evaluation by submitting the Transfer Credit Evaluation Request Form. Your request will be handled within two or three days and a representative from the Transfer Resource Center will contact you to let you know if any follow-up appointments and/or procedures are necessary. 


    For further information, contact the Transfer Credit Evaluator at the University Advisement Center at 201.200.3418.

    Academic Advisement
    Academic advisement is offered at many places at NJCU; we will help 
    find the right advisement choice for you. 

    To ensure proper advisement, please let your advisor know if you intend to complete an A.A. or A.S. degree before you enroll. Final transcripts should be submitted no later than the end of January in order to receive a complete and final evaluation before the start of the fall semester.

    Health Insurance
    New Jersey state law mandates that all full-time undergraduate and graduate students must have health insurance.  (Full-time is defined as 12 or more credits for undergraduate and 9 or more credits for graduate.  To assist students in meeting this requirement, NJCU offers a discounted Student Health Insurance Plan.  If you are already covered by another insurance policy, you must waive out of the NJCU policy by providing proof of insurance.  Please visit the Student Insurance site for more information on how to enroll or waive.
