Atlantic County is home to two outstanding, nationally-recognized colleges and now a University.

Stockton University

The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey has been granted university status by the New Jersey Secretary of Higher Education. The name change to Stockton University highlights Stockton’s overall growth in academic achievements and new programs, as well as its new facilities.  Stockton is ranked at #9 among public Regional Universities of the North by U.S. News & World Report in its 2015 edition of “America’s Best Colleges.” Stockton’s expansion plans serve as an economic driver for our region with $100 million investment fund and 17% increase in enrollment during the past 10 years. The much anticipated Stockton-Island Campus on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City will open in the fall of 2015 and will bring with it new opportunities for students to study in the center of the action of the Atlantic City Tourism District. Stockton’s geographic footprint has been continually growing with a diverse range of higher learning facilities located in Ocean, Cape May and Atlantic counties.

Atlantic Cape Community College

Atlantic Cape Community College is also expanding its facilities with the new $44 million state-of-the-art Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics building,  student center and a Hospitality Center. ACCC is also now partnering with Rutgers University to provide local access to its upper division and graduate course offerings. Its Casino Career Institute and Academy of Culinary Arts are both critically acclaimed. In addition, the college has secured a $2 million Economic Development Administration grant that will be used toward the construction of the future home of the Aviation Institute which will further strengthen the aviation industry in the county.
