Applications to all CoAD programs at NJIT are handled centrally by the Office of Admissions.The College of Architecture and Design (CoAD) requires students to submit a portfolio of creative work as part of the NJIT admissions process. A portfolio conveys an applicant’s visual awareness and reflects their potential for success in design education. The College considers the portfolio as only one of a number of factors when evaluating a candidate for admission, but submission is required. In some instances, a strong portfolio may make the difference between the College offering a place in the class or not. Please see below specific guidelines for the school and program at CoAD you are applying for:
Freshman applications must be submitted through the Common Application and the associated portfolio through the integrated SlideRoom application as specified below.
External transfer students coming from either a two-year or four-year institution must apply through the NJIT Office of Admissions. A portfolio of creative work must also be submitted via the CoAD Transfer & Non Common Application section of SlideRoom. Official transcript(s) must be submitted to the NJIT Office of Admissions.
