Documentation required

Upon arrival at orientation you will be required to provide:

  • Printed I-94

Our orientation is 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 and public safety teams, and 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!

If, for reasons beyond your control, you are unable to attend the orientation, please contact us immediately via email global@njit.edu to let us know when you will be arriving on campus.  Upon arrival, report to the Office of Global Initiatives at Fenster Hall, suite 140.

We are looking forward to seeing you on campus soon!
