The Jesuit University of New Jersey

What happens when you put one of the world’s greatest teaching organizations next to one of the world’s greatest cities? You get Saint Peter’s University, a Jesuit institution just 12 minutes from New York City. Saint Peter’s prides itself on delivering a unique learning experience shaped by rigorous academics, internships that provide real-word experience, community service, and a genuine, caring community that supports you long after graduation. 

With an undergraduate student-faculty ratio of 13:1 and a stellar faculty committed to success, Saint Peter’s offers more than 50 undergraduate majors as well as master’s-level and doctoral degree programs. We’re small enough to know you by name and big enough to bring the world to your door.

Saint Peter’s offers flexible transfer programs for students from community colleges and four-year colleges and universities. The University accepts up to 66 transfer credits from community colleges and up to 90 from four-year institutions. Saint Peter’s also has agreements with a number of community colleges for applicants to enroll at a discounted tuition rate. Plus, transfer students demonstrating academic excellence may be invited to join the University’s Honors Program. 

Our graduates gain just as much experience outside the classroom as they do inside it. The Center for Career Engagement and Experiential Learning (CEEL) is dedicated to career development through guidance, résumé building, and career fairs. CEEL works to connect you to internships, employer partnerships, and alumni networking that’ll prepare you for a career after graduation. In addition, University faculty enrich your classroom experience through research and practical knowledge. They’re committed to blending critical-thinking skills with real- life learning to create a relevant education.
