Commitment to affordability
Bloomfield College helps make reaching your dreams financially possible.
The College proudly offers the lowest full-time tuition rate for any private four-year college or university in New Jersey. Many students attend our small private college for the same or below the direct cost of a public institution, as 94.5% of our students receive grants or scholarships.
We are also committed to cost transparency, having eliminated comprehensive and course fees. That means families know the cost of attendance up front, with no hidden expenses.
Bloomfield College is test optional, which means you won’t have to submit SAT or ACT scores to be considered for admission. We’ve found that high school GPA has been a more reliable predictor of student success on campus.
According to the National Center for Fair and Open Testing, institutions that have adopted a test-optional policy experienced an increase in applicants who are more diverse and demonstrate higher academic quality.
