As we read each application, we like being surprised by each applicant’s interests and talents. Although there is no “ideal” student in our mind, common themes tend to emerge: smart. motivated. curious. creative. Is this you? Begin the next great chapter in your story and hear directly from admissions counselors about why RCNJ could be the right fit for you.


Your Admissions Counselor will be your partner from start to finish in the admissions process. You can set up a one-on-one virtual appointment when you are ready. Counselors will be available to meet with you.
