students dancing on the green at Bloomfield College

New Student Orientation

We’re excited to help you gear up for the Fall 2024 semester, #AcceptedBCBear!

It’s an exciting time to be part of the Bloomfield College community, as we merged with Montclair State University to become Bloomfield College of Montclair State University. This means lower tuition and costs, expanded student life and broader academic opportunities while still experiencing the small, personal campus Bloomfield is known for. As part of Montclair, Bloomfield College will continue to provide a transformative educational experience in a small, supportive setting with the added perks of a doctoral research university.
