Prospective Parents & Families


Welcome, Parents & Family of Future Ospreys! 

Thank you so much for visiting our resource page for family members of prospective students. As Stockton University’s Chief Enrollment Management Officer, I oversee the Offices of Admissions, Bursar (Student Accounts) and Financial Aid, as well as our Goals/Gear-Up college preparatory program within the local Atlantic City and Pleasantville school districts. In addition to being a proud alumnus, having earned three degrees from Stockton, I also have a daughter who is in her second year at Stockton in our health sciences program. As a parent, I can absolutely relate to the anxiety you may be facing as you embark on sending your student to college, and please rest assured knowing that every member of the Stockton community is here to assist your student, and all of our students, with achieving their academic goals and working toward a successful future.

Stockton has been my home for my entire adult life, and there is no place that I would rather spend my professional career. I hope that you and your family find our caring, student-first focus to be like no other higher education institution you’ve encountered. We truly pride ourselves on cultivating lifelong scholars and engaged citizens of the world.

This page was created with you in mind, to provide one stop for updates and resources in the hopes of making the process of choosing Stockton simple and stress-free. I encourage you to review all of the information, and if I can be of any assistance to you, please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly at

Go Ospreys!!

Dr. Robert R. Heinrich, Chief Enrollment Management Officer
