  • In order to maintain quality programs and student services, the University will adhere to the printed deadlines. Failure to submit complete, official records of all AP/prior college coursework and high school transcripts will result in a delay in the application review process. Applications and all supporting documents must be received by the Undergraduate Admissions Office by stated deadlines to ensure that a decision can be rendered for the desired term.

Students with special conditions who wish to apply after the stated deadline should call the Admissions Office at 973.720.2646 and ask to speak with an admissions counselor.  Individual cases will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis for admission into each semester. To receive proper guidance, students should make an appointment with an admissions counselor and bring copies of all official paperwork.
