NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — Rutgers University’s Board of Governors is set to consider tuition for the upcoming school year.
Some students on Thursday are planning to protest for a tuition freeze.
The students say New Jersey’s flagship university can spare students an increase in the wake of the UMDNJ merger and Athletic Department scandals.
Rutgers approved a 2 1/2 percent increase last year. It cost the average in-state Rutgers student $13,073 in tuition and fees.
Rowan University is holding the line on tuition and fees for undergraduate students from New Jersey at $12,380.
Richard Stockton College trustees approved keeping tuition at the 2012-13 level of $12,322 for in-state students.
