Planning Your Educational Expenses
When it comes to planning your educational expenses, having accurate estimates of tuition and fees is crucial. To assist you in this process, we provide a range of tools and resources designed to help you estimate and budget your costs effectively. Below, you will find information on two key resources: the interactive Cost Calculator and comprehensive cost tables. Feel free to explore these tools to gain valuable insights into your financial obligations and make informed decisions about your education.
Tools and Resources for Estimating Costs
ANNUAL ADJUSTMENTS AND CHANGES IN TUITION AND FEES
Please note that the figures provided below for the 2023-2024 academic year are estimates and not definitive costs. They are subject to potential variations. Tuition and fees undergo annual adjustments and are finalized by the Rutgers Board of Governors in July of each fiscal year.
Cost Calculator: Interactive & Insightful Tool
The Cost Calculator is an interactive online tool that empowers you to estimate your cost of attendance. By inputting key factors such as your residency status, living arrangements, number of credits, and applicable funding, you can conduct what-if analyses to explore different scenarios. This tool provides real-time calculations and valuable insights, allowing you to plan and budget with greater precision.
Cost Tables: Transparency & Flexibility for Self-Guided Analysis
In addition to the Cost Calculator, we offer comprehensive cost tables that provide transparency and flexibility for self-guided analysis. These tables provide a breakdown of tuition and fees based on various factors such as residency status, credit load, and other considerations. By referring to these tables, you can perform your own calculations and gain a deeper understanding of the potential costs associated with your educational journey.
Miscellaneous Expenses & Additional Considerations
Rutgers University will directly bill you for charges, including tuition, fees, and room and board. It is important to note that in addition to these billed charges, you will also need to cover other expenses such as books and supplies, transportation, and miscellaneous costs (e.g., laundry and personal care items).
For graduate students attending full-time (9 credits or more during spring or fall semesters), it is mandatory to obtain or provide proof of health insurance. Detailed information regarding costs and coverage can be found on the Rutgers University Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) website.
If you are interested, Rutgers University offers the Rutgers University Tuition Payment Plan (RUTPP), providing the option to pay your term bill through convenient monthly installments. For any questions or assistance regarding this payment plan, please contact Nelnet Campus Commerce at 888-470-6014.
