Raritan Valley Community College tuition goes up again - Craig Turpin, NJ Advance

Raritan Valley Community College's board of trustees Tuesday passed a $53.1 million budget for 2017 that reduces operating costs while raising tuition $7 per credit. "The new budget carefully balances Raritan Valley Community College's commitment to keeping the cost of a college education within reach for our students, while still providing them with the critical support services and quality instruction they need to succeed and thrive in today's competitive world," said college President Michael J. McDonough. "Before asking students to pay more in tuition, we carefully examined spending and identified $500,000 in cost-savings through employee retirements and attrition." Tuition at the college has increased every year since the 2000-01 school year, with per credit increases of $4 in 2008 and 2014, $3 in 2009, 2010 and 2011, $15 in 2012, and $8 in 2013 and 2015. http://www.nj.com/hunterdon/index.ssf/2016/03/raritan_valley_community_college_tuition_increase.html
