Division of Student Affairs


When a mid-size, public university has the extraordinary distinction of having seven of its students selected in one semester for highly competitive, national awards, people take notice. 

When a mid-size, public university achieves the milestone of moving from a regional classification to a national ranking on U.S. News & World Report, people take notice. 

While these awards and distinctions exemplify our commitment to quality and excellence, what matters most of all isn’t our rankings or achievements. It is you. You, the future Rowan University student, and your parents. 

Recruitment of high caliber students who are a strong fit for the Rowan community, retention and support for these students throughout their college careers, and the overall student experience: these tenets serve as the core mission of the Division of Student Affairs. 

Our continued commitment to making a Rowan University education affordable and accessible means that Rowan University offers just shy of $18 million in scholarships to over 3,000 students. It means that our president quite literally rolls up his sleeves, making and selling hot sauce to support student scholarship. It means that our graduates are ranked in the top 35% for return on investment (payscale.com). The value employers put on your Rowan degree is better than almost two-thirds of many of our neighboring private institutions. So you will be offered the same jobs and salaries as these graduates but your debt-to-income ratio will be much lower, making paying off college an achievable goal. 

Our small class sizes, experiential learning, leadership opportunities and career placement network puts you at the center of our world. You, the future Rowan University student, are important to us and we look forward to the day that you step foot on our campus as a #RowanPROUD Prof.
