PLAINFIELD, NJ - Five outstanding Plainfield High School Class of 2019 students were admitted to New Jersey City University on Monday as part of the school's Instant Decision Day.

NJCU, according to its website, provides students with "small classes led by world-class faculty mentors, a broad array of high-quality undergraduate and graduate degree programs, and the lowest tuition offered by a four-year public university in the state of New Jersey—all on a thriving campus in bustling, cosmopolitan Jersey City."
