Stockton College holds the line on tuition and fees

The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey will not raise tuition and fees for 2013-14, the school announced Wednesday.

Undergraduate tuition for a full-time, in-state student at the college based in Galloway will remain at $3,974.09 per semester, or $7,948 annually. Fees, covering course supplies, technology fees and operation of the wellness center, remain unchanged at $2,187 per semester or $4,374 annually.

Room and board costs will rise an average of 2 percent, the college said.

“Stockton is mindful of the issues our students and their parents face in paying for college,” President Herman Saatkamp said in a prepared statement, “and we are determined to keep their costs down while maintaining the quality of a Stockton education.”

Rowan University also froze tuition this year. Rutgers will set tuition on Thursday.
