What Do You Need To Apply for Financial Aid at NJIT?

To file a valid financial aid application, you must:

  1. Check if you qualify for the program—Besides meeting the general financial aid eligibility criteria, you must comply with other basic requirements for a particular financial aid option
  2. Fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)—It’s a special form including various questions regarding your family’s income, expenses, and other financial circumstances. This document is your ticket to most NJIT financial support programs. In other words, once you complete and submit it, you will be taken into consideration for all available aid options
  3. Revise your Student Aid Report (SAR)—This is the second most important document for the application process, and you will get it a couple of days after submitting your FAFSA form. Its purpose is to help you revise all the information you provided in the form and ensure there aren’t any errors that could make the institution decline your application
  4. Wait for NJIT to make a decision—The institute will calculate your financial need by determining the difference between:
    1. Cost of Attendance (COA)
    2. Expected Family Contribution (EFC)

Based on the result, the university can approve your request and send you an official financial aid offer or reject your application if you don’t meet the necessary criteria.
