An Extraordinary Opportunity for Students!

The Honors Program at New Jersey City University provides endless opportunities for exceptional students and is designed for our most talented, motivated, and intellectually curious students. We understand your passion for learning and want to give you the tools you need to further your pursuits.

As a member of the Honors Program, each entering freshman student will receive the following benefits and opportunities:

  • Honors Scholarship – covering full tuition, beginning at $48,000 over four years. The scholarship is renewable for eight semesters as long as the student remains in the Honors Program and is taking 15 or more credits each semester.
  • University supported study abroad experience.
  • A laptop computer.
  • Dedicated academic advisors to guide you in your college studies and coursework.

Honors scholars enjoy the challenges and rewards of working closely with distinguished faculty in small, interactive courses and on scholarly research projects. Beyond the classroom, Honors scholars engage in a variety of community activities that prepare them to become innovative leaders in their chosen profession and global citizens.

Admission to the Honors Program at NJCU is competitive and we will consider applicants with a strong academic background.
