Tuition & Fees

The Rutgers Board of Governors approved the University's tuition and fee rate schedule on July 23, 2019  for the 2019-2020 academic year.

The University's Office of Student Accounting, Billing, and Cashiering provides:

  • Access to your online term bill
  • Processes refunds
  • Administers payment plans
  • Coordinates exit counseling

We strongly recommend that students review their website for current tuition and fees information,  refund policies and procedures, and documents for tax preparation (e.g. 1098-T, W-9 S, Tuition Summary, Education Tax Benefits).
