NJ Come Home

As New Jersey faces the challenges of rebuilding a devastated economy due to the coronavirus crisis, our state needs help from the 120,000 New Jersey residents who attend a college or university outside of our borders. Come see what Stockton University has to offer you. 

Join the NJ Scholar Corps program at Stockton and stand up for your home state. In doing so, you will have the opportunity to attend one of New Jersey’s top-ranked public universities with more than 160 undergraduate degree programs, highly qualified faculty, opportunities to conduct research with faculty and for internships in business and community organizations, building career connections in your home state. Best of all, you will have all this at a lower cost of attendance than out-of-state, a factor that may be important to you and your families at this difficult time.
