Rutgers University raises tuition by 3 percent

July 14, 2009 1:41:54 PM PDT
The cost of attending New Jersey's largest university is going up again. The Rutgers University Board of Governors on Tuesday passed a $1.9 billion budget with a 3 percent hike in tuition and fees for in-state students, the smallest in more than a decade.

In-state undergraduate tuition will go up $278 to $9,546.

Out-of-state students will pay $974 more than last year, or $20,456. Meanwhile, average undergraduate fees rose $68 to $2,340.

Those numbers do not reflect the total cost of living on campus.

For New Jersey students that will be $22,262 - more than $1,000 over last year - because of a 4 percent increase in housing and dining rates.

Still, the tuition hike isn't nearly as steep as last year, when it rose by 8.5 percent.
