Tuition

A world-class university you can affordNJIT Online is an affordable education.  See just how affordable it is by using our Tuition Calculator.

NJIT offers an e-tuition rate which reduces the out-of-state graduate student’s tuition, bringing it closer to the in-state rate if all courses in a given semester are online. Because of the new online tuition, adults living anywhere in the country, as well as abroad, can afford to earn a certificate or a degree from NJIT.

Out-of-state residents who choose to attend NJIT enjoy not only world-class degree programs but also significant cost and financial advantages over similar universities and, now, NJIT breaks new ground with an  Online Tuition Break for Out-of-State Residents.
