Rutgers raising tuition rate by 4 percent

July 16, 2010 6:24:11 AM PDT
In-state students at Rutgers University will see their tuition bills increase by 4 percent in the fall.

Combined with increases in mandatory fees, the average undergraduate will pay $12,559 - $9,926 in tuition and $2,633 in fees.

Those living on campus also will pay 5.1 percent more in room and board costs.

Altogether, a Rutgers undergraduate living on campus will pay $23,465 to attend the state's largest public university.

Out-of-state undergraduate tuition will increase by 6 percent, to $21,388.

The Rutgers Board of Governors approved the new rates on Thursday as it adopted a $2 billion university budget.

Rutgers officials say decreasing financial support from the state contributed to the need to raise tuition and fees.
