Albert Dorman Honors scholars receive significant Honors Merit Scholarships based on their academic performance in high school and on SAT/ACT scores. Honors students receive significant scholarship awards, up to full tuition and room, and are in addition to any scholarships granted by NJIT. Out-of-state U.S. citizens or permanent residents may also be eligible for a Presidential Scholarship, which reduces tuition to the in-state rate. In the event the total amount of all university scholarships and grant aid exceed allowable charges for tuition and fees (and room and board for on-campus residents), the Office of Student Financial Aid Services may reduce or cancel your additional merit scholarship.
