International Students Pre-Arrival Information

August 29 - September 2, 2016


Welcome to NJIT! We are excited to welcome you to our campus and look forward to seeing you soon. These are the next steps you will need to complete in order to secure your spot and have an easy transition:

Step 1: Pay Your USD $250 Tuition Deposit (F-1 students only)

You must pay your USD $250 tuition deposit to confirm your spot at NJIT. You can deposit online at  Your deposit also serves as your registration for the International Student Orientation.

 Step 2: Medical clearance (F-1 and J-1 students)

You must submit two medical forms by August 1, 2016: Immunization Form and Physical Exam Form. Click here to download the forms.

New Jersey State law mandates that Health and Immunization forms be submitted before you can register for classes. If you have any questions, please contact Health Services at +1 (973) 596-3621, or send fax to +1 (973) 596-0047.  You are advised to have the required forms completed by your physician before you depart your home country, since the cost of a physical exam in the U.S. and immunizations are very expensive.

Step 3: Airport pick-up request (F-1 and J-1 students)

NJIT offers airport pick-up during specific days and times for all international students who will be starting this fall.

Airport pick-ups for NEW NJIT international students will be offered on August 26, 27, 28 at 2:00 PM and 8:00 PM on each day. The shuttles will leave the airport promptly at this time, and are not able to wait for students past the scheduled pick up time. Please plan accordingly when reserving your pick up, to account for the time needed for customs/immigration and baggage claim.

If you would like to schedule your pick up, fill out the Airport Pick-up Request Form. You will receive an email confirming the receipt of your request. If you do not receive an email within 24 hours, please contact us at  We can only guarantee your airport pick up if you submit the Airport Pick Up form.

If you have any questions please contact us directly at We will be glad to help!
