What Students Are Saying

3.69 Average Rating
Depending on your major and year, classes can range from incredibly easy to very very tough. Foreign teachers may occasionally be an issue, so if you need a good grade, you may have to seek help from someone besides the professor for extra help. But besides that issue, most of the teachers have a passion for what they teach and that's a definite plus.

At Stockton, the difficulty of each class will change. Each class will teach you in a different way and challenge you in different areas. Stockton strives to hire the best professors and staff.
Jessalee from Trenton, NJ
As a double major in sciences, I have found my classes comparable, or even harder than some of my friend's classes who went to schools such as Rutgers. I have to study everyday in order to keep my GPA high. Most professors are very willing to help out if you are struggling, which is a benefit of the small class sizes that Stockton offers.

The academics are not difficult because the professors spend a lot of time going into detail about subject matter. You will never have a question unanswered. The professors are all friendly, some can be even funny. The courses are difficult, but they are made easier by the professors and friends at the tutoring center. I do not have too much to say about academics because it is up to you. The professors to a fantastic job teaching. Showing up to class, paying attention, and doing all the work are essential to doing good in this school. This much is up to you. Sometimes the classwork will pile up the the point where you have two essays and a project due next week, but they can all be completed is time is managed correctly.
George from Rochelle Park, NJ
As a small school, Stockton has a fairly relaxed atmosphere that both encourages competition and achievement, while mitigating stress and anxiety for students. While classes vary in intensity and difficulty, the school provides tutoring services, and various other resources to help students to succeed.
Trevor from Egg Harbor Township, NJ
I didn't find Stockton to be overwhelmingly difficult. I graduated with a 3.67 GPA in Political Science. Most courses require attendance and professors are approachable and very willing to give you the tools to succeed. I was able to tackle more core major courses while also leaving at least one or two courses per semester to take a "just for fun" type of class. For example, I took a class on creating a graphic novel that was super enjoyable. Follow this advice: Do not take Stockton's notorious one-word courses. Examples of these include courses like Trees, Volcanoes, and Bicycles. These courses sound simple enough but they are intense and difficult. Ask any Stockton alumni and they will tell you the same!
Cory from Sicklerville, NJ
No college is perfect. They all have their faults, but since Stockton is a small school the professors are able to connect with all of their students. I have never had a professor who wasn't will to go out of their way to make sure I succeed.
