Tuition & Fees Rates

  • The Rutgers Board of Governors took the unprecedented step of freezing tuition and fees from 2019-20 for the 2020-21 academic year. This action was taken in recognition of the economic stresses that confront every member of our community and despite cost increases in virtually every area of Rutgers operations. ​
  • Rutgers will also be implementing a 15% reduction in what has been called the “Campus Fee” for the fall semester. You can read more about this at

Tution and fees vary based on your student's school, campus and program affiliation. To help you better understand, here is a list of the RU–N undergraduate schools your student may be affiliated with:
