We are a comprehensive, liberal arts institution serving 2,000 students with inspiring stories. The College is committed to enabling students, particularly those who have been historically excluded from higher education, to realize their intellectual and personal goals. Our mission is to prepare students to attain academic, personal, and professional excellence in a multicultural and global society.
U.S. News & World Report recently ranked Bloomfield College the 15th most diverse National Liberal Arts College in the United States.
More than half of our students identify themselves as first-generation and are the first in their families to enroll in college.
The College is amidst a five year run of freshman classes over 400 students for the first time in our history. Quality instruction, a commitment to student service, and improved facilities and grounds are just some of the attributes that have helped fuel an increase in prospective student interest and action. The size of our residential student population has doubled since 2003 and we have recently built two new, state-of-the-art residential halls to keep up with the demand. We are located in historic Bloomfield, New Jersey, just 15 miles from New York City, a cultural epicenter for entertainment, business, and internship and career opportunities. 11 NJ Transit lines stop within walking distance to our vibrant campus, making for an easy commute to and from the College.
Bloomfield College has the lowest full-time tuition rate for any private, four-year college or university in New Jersey. 93% of our students receive financial aid at Bloomfield College and many students are able to attend our small, private college for at or below the direct cost of a public institution. We are also committed to cost transparency, having eliminated comprehensive and course fees in 2014. This means families know cost of attendance up front, with no hidden expenses or fees.
Our highly respected Frances M. McLaughlin Division of Nursing boasts a 94 percent licensure exam pass rate. Our Computer Science and Network Engineering programs report 70 percent of their graduates are employed in their fields of study upon graduation. We’re proud of what we’re able to accomplish with determined and committed faculty and staff, a safe and welcoming campus environment, and exciting, new facilities such as our brand-new residence hall and Center for Technology + Creativity.
