Changing the Game for Our Students

With a student population that is largely first-generation and from modest financial means, NJCU meets their needs through close advising, mentoring, and affordable tuition.

Our students include transfer students, returning students, military members, working parents, professionals looking to change their careers—and more. But no matter how they may differ from each other, all have these things in common: they work hard for their successes and NJCU supports them in changing their lives.

#UpwardMobility. Recognized as one of the top colleges in the nation improving students' upward economic mobility by the Social Mobility Index and U.S. News and World Report, NJCU is a great return on investment. Ten years after graduation, students earn 22% more than the national average income.

While they are here, students receive unparalleled faculty support that brings out and refines their academic talents. It's no surprise, then, that NJCU was named a top producer of U.S. Fulbright students three years in a row.

Once they graduate, our students go on to become game changers in their own right, as influencers of industry, impactful civic leaders, and inspiring role models in fields ranging from music to nursing and media to education.
