Stockton College’s tuition and fees will increase 2 percent next year, its board of trustees decided Wednesday.

The 2 percent increase applies to tuition and mandatory fees for all students, regardless of degree level, residency, and full- or part-time status.

For an in-state full-time undergraduate student, tuition and fees will increase to $12,568.50 per year, from $12,322.06. Out-of-state full-time undergraduates will pay $19,089.32 over the 2014-15 school year, up from $18,715.02.

Full-time undergraduate students pay a flat tuition and fees rate per semester for anywhere from 12 to 20 credits. Other students — graduate students or part-time undergraduates — pay per credit hour.

Other college costs vary by individual student: housing, meals, commute, books.

Last year, Richard Stockton College of New Jersey was able to freeze its tuition and costs. It was the only such freeze in Stockton’s history, the school said in a news release.

Charles Ingram, Stockton’s vice president of administration and finance, said at that time that it was unlikely to be repeated this year, the school said Wednesday, “due to mandated costs such as salary increases negotiated by the state.”

Wednesday’s release also described the 2 percent increase as “a modest increase the Board of Trustees said is necessary to maintain facilities and support academic excellence.”

Summer 2015 tuition and fees, paid per credit hour, will remain unchanged from this summer 2014 session.

A table of total tuition and fees is below:
