Uplifting Education

Bloomfield College is a unique and special place where students write their own story, one we help make a successful one. We believe a college should be measured by its ability to improve the lives of its students.

We are one of the most diverse colleges in the country


As the 14th most diverse liberal arts college in the nation according to U.S. News & World Report in 2017, the College takes pride in its student community.

Bloomfield College is the only New Jersey institution to be recognized as a Predominantly Black Institution (PBI) and Hispanic Serving Institution, and is also a Minority serving Institution.

More than half of our students identify themselves as first-generation and are the first in their families to enroll in college.

We improve students' economic standing

Bloomfield College was ranked highest in New Jersey in social mobility in the U.S. News & World Report 2021 Best College's Top National Liberal Arts Colleges category.

The College has also held the highest success rate among all New Jersey liberal arts colleges and universities in moving students forward in economic standing, according to a study by the Equality of Opportunity Project published in The New York Times. We've been cited among the nation’s top colleges for helping students from low-income families enter the middle and upper class, according to an American Council on Education and University Business Report

Bloomfield College has helped lift thousands of students toward their academic and personal goals.

We are committed 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 a grant or scholarship.

We are also committed to cost transparency, having eliminated comprehensive and course fees. That means families know the cost of attendance upfront, with no hidden expenses.

We are producing results

SAT/ACT optional

Test Optional Admission

Bloomfield College is test-optional, which means you won’t have to submit SAT or ACT scores to be considered*. We’ve found that high school GPA has been a more reliable predictor of student success on campus than standardized test scores alone.

According to the National Center for Fair and Open Testing, institutions that have adopted a test-option-al policy experienced an increase in applicants that are more diverse and demonstrate higher academic quality.

With 11 NJ Transit lines stop within walking distance of our vibrant campus, getting to Bloomfield College is an easy commute.
