The number of degrees awarded by the university
has been consistent in recent years, subject to minor fluctuations.
The same is also true of the degree levels awarded (Baccalaureate,
Master's, Ph.D.). After a period of enormous growth in the 1970s
and early 1980s, Rutgers' size has stabilized, consistent with
demographic trends in New Jersey. While the overall percent of
college age students has declined in recent years, the percent
of this group seeking higher education has increased, resulting
in a stabilized college population in the state.
