A state school, Rutgers offers a comparatively low tuition for in-state residents. Undergraduate financial aid encompasses academic scholarships, which require a minimum grade point average of 3.0, as well as need-based federal aid like Pell grants, work-study programs and loans.
Graduate students may apply for these same sources of aid and may also receive full-tuition fellowships or assistantships from their department of study.
