Ramapo Increases Tuition by 2.3 Percent Due to Cuts in State Budget - CA$H COMMITTEE, Rampo News

The Student Government Association’s College Advocates Supporting Higher Education (CA$H) Committee raises awareness about higher education issues that directly impact us all, especially those that affect our tuition. Every other week, we’ll discuss a different issue facing higher education. In this issue, we will focus on the 2.3 percent increase in tuition at Ramapo College for the fiscal year 2016. The reason stems from Governor Chris Christie’s budget, which has cut direct state appropriation of New Jersey state colleges and universities. The base appropriation for Ramapo College has been cut $1,492,000 from the previous year. As a result, tuition increased to avoid cutting programs and services at the College.
