NJIT Transfer Connections - January 7, 2014
Tuesday, January 7, 2014 from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM (EST)
Transfer Connections is the transfer student orientation at NJIT that is held before the beginning of the fall and spring semesters. At Transfer Connections you will have the opportunity to meet with upperclassmen students, called Connections Peer Leaders, to help with your transition to NJIT. They are excellent resources in providing you with first-hand experience and know-how regarding your academic and college experience.
What are my transport/parking options?
Please park at the Parking Deck on Summit Street. No parking pass will be needed. You may also take the Newark light rail to the Warren Street/NJIT stop.
What should I bring?
Is it required?
Transfer Connections is highly encouraged. While you have experienced college at your previous institution, attending orientation will help you get connected and understand requirements specific to NJIT.
Can parents and guests attend?
Transfer Connections is intended for admitted students. While parents will not be turned away, we would like to avoid any distractions while you are in attendance. Additionally, personal information and records can only be shared with admitted college students by federal law (see FERPA). Parents will be asked to meet with the parent representative, Mr. Anthony Culpepper, during the program. Other guests are discouraged from attending with you and will not be accommodated.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
It will help to bring your printed receipt to scan in your information quickly. You can also use the Eventbrite smartphone app.
