NEXT STEPS: FIRST-YEAR STUDENTS

  1. Upon your acceptance to NJCU, you must reserve your place by mailing your $50 enrollment deposit and confirmation card. Upon receipt of your confirmation and deposit, NJCU will send you detailed information about the enrollment process.

  2. Placement Testing: Once you have paid your deposit, you will receive an invitation to take the ACCUPLACER Placement Test, which assesses your skill levels in writing, reading, and mathematics to determine the required courses you will take during your first semester. All incoming freshmen must complete the test unless they are exempt due to their SAT scores. Please register online for the test as soon as you receive your invitation.

  3. Advisement and Registration: Once you have taken the Placement Test, you should make an appointment at the University Advisement Center to review your test results, discuss your general studies requirements, and register for your first semester of classes.

FINANCIAL AID

Financial aid awards for the academic year are accessible via GothicNet, NJCU's intranet. All requests for additional documentation must be resolved prior to the offer of any financial assistance.

Once awarded, you will receive a letter outlining the aid you are eligible to receive for the academic year.

In order to receive a federal loan, you are required to:

  • Accept the loan on GothicNet before it can be applied to your account
  • Be enrolled for at least six credits per semester to receive your loan

Grants and scholarship awards will automatically be applied to your account. 

All aid is based on full-time study; awards may be adjusted based on your actual enrollment. If you have questions about your financial aid or processing status, contact the Financial Aid Office at (201) 200-3173 or financialaid@njcu.edu.

 

HEALTH INSURANCE

New Jersey City University does not offer a student health insurance plan. However, students not covered under a parent’s plan can obtain insurance through the federal Patient Protection and Affordability Care Act. Find out more at www.healthcare.gov.

 

Looking Ahead

To receive aid in subsequent years, you must maintain satisfactory academic progress at NJCU. Review the guidelines on maintaining eligibility.
