    Graduation Rate

    Loading...
    58%
    ABOVE AVERAGE

    New Jersey Institute of Technology graduation rate is above the national average.

    58% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to New Jersey Institute of Technology completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

    The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

    Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This index doesn’t consider students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare educational institutions.

      Overall Rating:

      I went to enquire about their master's program. I was made to wait an hour before I could see their advisor. I wanted to enroll part time as I was working. But they treated me as if I was a fresh college graduate. The information I was seeking was not forthcoming. Instead they started evaluating my credentials and asking me to take GRE. So much for a sub standard school. I work for Qualcomm and we don't even consider njit students for internships. My bad I went here to enquire. I eventually ended up with Georgia Tech.

      This place isn't the best for guests who visit students. Very displeased by that. Otherwise, the place doesn't seem too bad for students.

      Overall Rating:

      I definitely like this school better than Kean University. Tuition is always going up, the academics are not the best and so is the reputation. NJIT is much better than Kean and I have learned alot. This is perhaps one of the most underrated schools in NJ if not in the USA. As long as you put in the effort, it will be worth it. Believe me.

      Overall Rating:

      The school is over rated. many professors are racist because they think that a black student is not inteligent and they think white kids know what they are doing. also the bursar office is extremely rude. the bursar office to me quite and ask them for schoolardship and payment plan. also moodle is slow and professor think that you are using that as exuse to not do your work. I regret attending njit
