School officials say Tuesday marks the official change of the institution from a college to a university.

The Jesuit school’s application for university designation was approved by the New Jersey Commission on Higher Education earlier this year.

The school, with campuses in Jersey City and Englewood Cliffs, was founded in 1872.

It offers bachelor’s degrees in more than 45 majors, five master’s degrees, and two doctoral degrees.

In addition to the name change, Saint Peter’s University has unveiled a new branding strategy for the school.
