Student Financial Aid Services will guide you through the process of finding all the sources of aid that might be available to you and your family. We know that the costs of higher education must often be offset by some form of financial assistance—including a combination of scholarships, grants, and loans.
To apply for federal, state and institutional financial aid, you must complete and submit a FAFSA each year that you are enrolled and for which you want to be considered for funding. To be considered for scholarship funds other than NJIT scholarships for freshman students, you must complete and submit a scholarship application.
Graduate students are automatically considered for graduate financial support as soon as an application is submitted. Submit your application no later than Jan. 15 for the fall semester and Oct. 15 for the spring semester in order to be considered for the Master's Fellows Scholarship and other types of graduate financial support.
