Rankings

Among other areas in which it has been recognized, Rutgers University
in general has been ranked in the top 25 Public National Universities
by U.S. News and World Report.

Accreditation

Rutgers is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher
Education. The purpose of this membership is to provide the
universities involved with standards and a means to improve.

Many of the programs within Rutgers University are authorized by industry-specific accreditation organizations.

Financial Aid

As you are looking into financial aid, it is important to fill out the
need-based applications that are required in order to get government
aid. You may not qualify for federal aid, but it is still a good idea
to fill out this application as it may be used at the university to
help you get some other scholarship that is also need-based.

Rutgers University encourages students to look into external sources of
scholarships as well as applying for federal aid and for merit
scholarships provided through Rutgers. Some of the scholarships/awards
available at the university include the following: Presidential
Scholarship, James Dickson Carr Scholarship, Scarlet Scholarship,
Rutgers International Award, National Merit
Scholarships/college-sponsored Merit Awards, September 11 Memorial
Scholarship, Rutgers Alumni Association Vincent R. Kramer Merit Endowed
Scholarship, Rutgers Class Endowed Scholarships, and the Theodore J.
and F. Elizabeth Kirsch Southern California Scholarship.

Athletics

The core values that are a part of Rutgers University in general are
also at the heart of their athletics. The school believes that whether
in academics or athletics, accountability, respect, community service,
diversity, fairness, integrity, and sportsmanship are all important.
Honing whatever skill is put before them is something that the student
athletes at Rutgers University set out to do.

The Scarlet Knights are a part of the NCAA. Today’s football and sports
are a far cry from what it looked like at the first intercollegiate
football game in 1869. The game between Rutgers and Princeton was only
the beginning of a tradition that is still something about which the
students at Rutgers University can be proud.
