Discussion of NJIT's Admissions Standards:

Roughly two-thirds of the applicants to NJIT are admitted. Most successful applicants have high school averages and SAT/ACT scores that are at least a little above average. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent students who were accepted. Successful applicants typically had SAT scores (RW+M) of 1050 or higher, an ACT composite of 21 or higher, and a high school average in the "B" range or better. As with most colleges with a technology-focused mission, NJIT applicants tend to demonstrate particular strengths in math.

In the middle of the graph you'll notice that a few red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) are mixed in with the blue and green. A handful of students who seemed to be on target for NJIT did not get in. On the flip side, you can see that some students were accepted who had grades and/or test scores below the norm. This is because the New Jersey Institute of Technology has holistic admissions and makes decisions based on more than numerical data. Programs such as Digital Design, Interior Design and Fine Arts require applicants to submit a portfolio of their creative work. Also, NJIT is concerned with trends in your grades (did they improve over the course of high school?) and the difficulty of your classes (AP and IB classes are viewed favorably).
