Rutgers University–Camden once again has been recognized nationally as a research university that provides great value and opportunity for its students.

Washington Monthly magazine ranks Rutgers University–Camden among the top 25 “Best Bang for the Buck” universities in the Northeast, which recognizes those institutions that help non-wealthy students attain marketable degrees at affordable prices.

In Washington Monthly’s 2021 ranking for national universities, Rutgers–Camden is ranked 22 in terms of providing social mobility opportunities for its students.

Similarly, U.S. News and World Report gives strong marks to Rutgers University–Camden in its 2022 rankings. Among national universities, Rutgers–Camden posts higher rankings in the following categories: Top Performers on Social Mobility (18, up from 26 in 2021), Top Public Universities (67, up from 71), Best Colleges for Veterans (86, up from 108), and Overall (148, up from 153 in 2021 and 166 in 2020).

These new rankings represent Rutgers University–Camden’s third year in the category for national universities, a status shift that occurred when Rutgers–Camden’s Carnegie classification was upgraded to R-2 in 2018 based on the university’s impressive growth in research and doctoral education.

“Rutgers–Camden is a place where excellence combines with access and affordability,” says Rutgers University–Camden Chancellor Antonio D. Tillis. “Our students receive a world-class Rutgers education with transformative learning experiences that help them to achieve their goals. Our faculty serve as mentors for our students as they engage in internships, original research, and civic leadership projects. We are pleased that U.S. News and World Report and Washington Monthly recognize that Rutgers–Camden is making a difference for our students and all of South Jersey, but the real indicator of our success is in how we are providing our students with the skills they need to succeed.”

More than 6,800 students are enrolled at Rutgers University–Camden in undergraduate and graduate programs, led by faculty committed to excellence in research and teaching. Nearly 40 majors, including special programs and an Honors College, comprise the undergraduate academic experience. The campus also offers nearly 30 graduate programs, including three interdisciplinary Ph.D. programs, a doctorate in nursing practice, an MBA, and the only law school in southern New Jersey.
