The New Jersey Institute of Technology has entered into a transfer agreement partnership with Essex County College to allow Essex students in an associate degree program to transfer into NJIT’s bachelor’s degree programs.
The institutions signed a three-year joint academic agreement designed to provide priority transfer into NJIT to qualified Essex students. The agreement took effect this semester and allows Essex students who have at least a 2.5 grade point average and who meet program-specific requirements to be guaranteed admission into NJIT after completing at least 30 college-level academic credits at Essex.
Admission also requires that students be enrolled at Essex without interruption longer than a single fall or spring semester.
Students interested in the Joint Admissions Program must apply prior to the end of their freshman year at Essex. Those who wish to apply beyond their freshman year may be considered by NJIT on a case-by-case basis. NJIT will waive the application fee for accepted students.
