Value of a Rutgers Degree

With reasonable tuition and generous financial aid programs, Rutgers offers an educational investment that will pay off. We aren’t just a great public research university, we’re affordable too!

I received a full Rutgers University-Newark financial aid package, and without it, I would not be in college.
