Bloomfield College now offers a 25% tuition discount to Wakefern employees and their dependents. The tuition discount can be applied to both the College’s undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
The Wakefern Food Corporation, founded in 1946 and based in Keasbey, New Jersey, U.S., is the largest Retailers’ cooperative group of supermarkets in the United States, and the largest employer in New Jersey.
“Bloomfield College is proud to partner with Wakefern Corp. on this important initiative to promote college access for their employees and their dependents,” said Adam Castro, Vice President for Enrollment Management at Bloomfield College. “The commitment Wakefern Corp. shows toward professional development is to be commended. Their employees and their families will add fresh perspectives and real-world experience to our classrooms. I am excited to see this partnership grow over the next few years.”
Bloomfield College currently offers 40 undergraduate programs and 5 graduate programs.
Many companies encourage employees to continue their education. Enrolling to begin or complete a degree program is an important decision but, too often, finances and hectic work schedules hold people back from pursuing higher education, even if it will earn a promotion or higher salary.
The College will provide Wakefern employees with invaluable resources and a broad range of academic support services via the Center for Innovation in Teaching to Enhance Learning (CITEL). CITEL services include a free Tutoring Center and Writing Center, testing and test preparation, academic support counseling, graduate preparation, a group study hub, and the Office of Adult Education.
Interested Wakefern employees should contact Adam Castro by phone 973-748-9000 ext. 1219 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or Jorge Fernandez, Assistant Director of Admission – Adult, Transfer, and Graduate Programs by phone 973-748-9000 ext. 1222 email@example.com to learn more.
Bloomfield College is one of 12 institutions to partner with Wakefern on this initiative.

Bloomfield College is not TEST OPTIONAL!
Bloomfield College has announced the adoption of a test-optional (SAT/ACT) policy. Undergraduate, first-year applicants will no longer be required to submit SAT/ACT test scores for evaluation during the Fall 2018 application review process.
“Our internal data analysis and studies at other institutions have demonstrated that the best predictor of college success is applicants’ high school performance and co-curricular involvement along with other demonstrations of motivation,” said Richard A. Levao, College President. “Rather than continue to insist that all applicants take one or more standardized tests, we will evaluate students on the other criteria. Our goal is to identify those capable of having a successful college career, rather than place barriers to admission in their path.”
SAT/ACT opt-out students will be evaluated based on high school grade point average, curriculum, recommendations, and writing skills among other achievements. Test optional applicants may be required to submit additional materials or participate in an official college interview.
A specific cohort of programs and scholarship opportunities will still require students to submit test scores.
“The decision to go test-optional was based both on data and our desire to stay true to our mission,” said Adam Castro, Vice President for Enrollment Management. “By going test-optional, we can expand our access mission to exceptional students with limitless academic potential but maybe without the means to afford pricey test preparation courses.”
According to the National Center for Fair and Open Testing, the colleges and universities that have adopted a test optional policy experienced an increase in applicants that are more diverse and demonstrate higher academic quality.
“We have long been one of the most affordable private colleges in New Jersey. Going test-optional is another example of Bloomfield College putting our students first,” said Castro.
