Prospective students can complete the standard application process online through the TCNJ Office of Admissions.

As you may have learned, the Department of Interactive Multimedia (IMM) no longer requires a portfolio for admission.  In order to apply to The College of New Jersey, you need only to submit an application via the common application.  You can select the department of Interactive Multimedia as either your primary or secondary choice of major at TCNJ within the common application.

If you’d like to talk to a faculty or staff member in IMM to learn more about the program and to determine if IMM is a good fit for you, please contact us (  We would love to learn more about your interests and speak more to you about the major.

Additional Information:
If you would like to include any additional information about yourself to The College of New Jersey within the Common Application, you are able to complete this within “Additional Information Section.” If relevant, you may also send a resume to the Office of Admissions with additional information about yourself.

Note: Completing the additional information section [for TCNJ] within the Common Application or sending a resume is not a requirement.
