Mandatory Attendance

Our Orientations are MANDATORY for ALL students.  At Orientation, you will be given information about NJIT, your immigration status, receive detailed academic advisement, register for classes, meet our medical, public safety teams, open bank accounts, learn how to pay your tuition.  We have found that students who really engage in our Orientation settle more quickly into their new surroundings, are happier and more successful!
