About Stockton University

Established in 1969 in Galloway Township, the Richard Stockton College is named after one of New Jersey's signers of the Declaration of Independence. The school is conveniently located just 20 minutes outside of Atlantic City.

Stockton administers its academics through eight schools. Several concentrations are available at the undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate levels. The college offers some unique and useful degree programs, such as a Master of Arts in Holocaust & Genocide Studies, and a Bachelor of Science in Speech Pathology & Audiology.

Financial aid is available through government grants and loans to those who qualify. Stockton also funds scholarships for its students, which are based primarily on academic merit.

Overall I believe Stockton is a great institution to further one's education. The classes can be challenging and may push you out of your comfort zone. I also like the fact that professors are so eager to help you and encourage you to stop by their offices. Furthermore, the campus is modern and there are plenty of places to hangout and study, and there is always something to do! I strongly encourage upperclassmen in high school to put Stockton at the top of their lists!
