Visit

Experience The College of New Jersey! Whether you’re a prospective freshman, transfer, or non-traditional student, we offer several opportunities to interact with a community of excited learners and devoted educators. As our guest, we encourage you to take advantage of any of the College’s opportunities to visit listed below.

 

Summer 2014 Weekday Campus Tours

These summer visits offer prospective first-year students an opportunity to sit in on an Admissions presentation and join a campus tour led by one of our student Ambassadors. *Summer campus tours, unlike our Fall and Spring tours, include a stop in our residence hall spaces.  Our Admissions Counselors will address questions regarding the College’s admissions process and our student Ambassadors will share their current student experience.  While we realize that it is often easier for prospective first-year students to visit college campuses during the summer months, TCNJ – like most college campuses – tends to look and feel different when the majority of the student body is not on campus.  Those visiting us for the first time over the summer are strongly encouraged to visit us again when fall or spring classes are in session.

Dates:

  • Summer Campus Tours will be offered on select dates between June 23rd and August 7th.  Log in as a new or returning visitor (sidebar on left) to view available tour dates/times and secure your seat in the admissions presentation.

Transfer Information Sessions and Tours

Contemplating transferring into The College of New Jersey? Whether you are coming from a two-year or four-year institution, we invite you to sit in on a presentation by our Transfer Admissions Counselor and join a campus tour. TCNJ’s Transfer Information Sessions and Tours are designed to inform and assist transfers with the application process, outline application requirements, provide credit evaluation information, and answer any questions that you may have.
