School Details

Founded about 250 years ago, only men attended Queen’s College upon its opening in 1766, and by 1825, the college assumed its “Rutgers College” title honoring Colonel Henry Rutgers, a Revolutionary War soldier. Then, in 1864, Rutgers earned congressional rights to become a land-grant college, supporting further growth and higher learning with the addition of a graduate program. Just beyond the turn of the twentieth century, women began pursuing studies at Rutgers, and by the mid 1950s, New Jersey designated the university as “public” labeling it Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. From that point forward, Rutgers University was joined by other institutions, and continued forward, adding new programs and constructing new facilities.

At Rutgers, 31 schools and colleges serve students seeking an undergraduate education, professional studies, graduate degrees, graduate medical education, and postdoctoral education. Combining the technological landscape and professional lifestyles of students, Rutgers University offers online degrees and courses through the Division of Continuing Studies at the New Brunswick campus.
