Event Details

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.

In addition, departmental academic advisors are available for the review and awarding of transfer credits and academic advising.  Students who have met all admissions requirements will be able to register for classes.  Transfer students will also have the opportunity to speak with representatives from the Offices of the Registrar, Bursar, Financial Aid, Admissions, EOP, Health Services, and International Students.  NJIT ID pictures will be taken after students have registered.

For questions or concerns, please contact the Center for First Year Students at FYC@njit.edu or 973.596.2981. More information can be found at our website at: http://www.njit.edu/firstyearstudents/incomingtransfers.php
