Stockton University trustees have voted to increase tuition and fees by 2.5 percent for the 2018-19 academic year.
Stockton currently receives the lowest per-student state aid among New Jersey public colleges. Stockton officials have been working with state legislators to review and revise how public colleges are funded.
Tuition and fees for a full-time undergraduate in-state student will cost $13,738 for the academic year, an increase of $335 from the previous year.
Stockton’s flat-rate tuition allows students to take from 12 credits to 20 credits per semester at no additional cost.
The 2.5 percent increase will also apply to out-of-state tuition and fees, per-credit classes and graduate programs.
The trustees also extended Stockton President Harvey Kesselman’s contract for another three years through 2021-22.
