In such an intimate environment, our outstanding and devoted faculty not only teach, but mentor and prepare students to succeed personally and professionally through hands-on learning and interaction, all within our small, picturesque campus environment.

As the region’s premier public liberal arts college, Ramapo prepares students to be successful leaders for a changing world.

Why choose Ramapo?

Great Value

When deciding on college, we know cost  is an important factor. Recognizing its importance, we encourage you to look not only at cost, but at the overall value of that choice.  Student outcomes such as retention rates (how many students return to the college each year), graduation rate (how many students graduate), average debt (what a student will incur over four years), tuition increases (what a four-year period will cost on average), and percentage of graduates employed or in graduate schools within one year of graduation provides a realistic and accurate description of value.

Over the last four years, Ramapo College has had the lowest annual tuition increase among all NJ public colleges, is among the top in four-year and six-year graduation rates and has the lowest percentage of students graduating with debt in New Jersey. Together, these statistics demonstrate that Ramapo College provides a quality education with a high return on investment. That’s value.
