Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, and Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (JBMDL) have established a partnership to bring service members and their dependents, retirees, civilian employees, and area residents opportunities to pursue their college education while staying close to home. This initiative provides high-quality undergraduate, graduate, and certificate programs, supported by University College at Rutgers University–Camden campus.
University College at Rutgers–Camden is the academic unit that is dedicated to supporting nontraditional and veteran students.
