Tuition and Aid


Attending Rutgers, or any university, will have both direct and indirect costs, which can include tuition, enrollment fees, books and class materials, transportation, and other personal expenses. 

Tuition is the cost charged by the university for taking courses and is often based on the number of credits you take.  At Rutgers, tuition varies based on school affiliation and degree program. After registering for courses, Rutgers issues students an online term bill each semester, which includes a detailed breakdown of all tuition and fees. If you're uncertain about the campus and department associated with your selected major, we encourage you to connect with a knowledgeable Rutgers Statewide advisor. 

Term bills list the tuition, fees, and other costs due after deducting credits for loans and financial aid, such as scholarships, grants, and other items. Paying your term bill completes your enrollment for each semester. An interest-free payment plan option is available.

Below are a few links that will help you better understand the tuition, fees, and other costs of attending Rutgers. Down the Financing Your Education guide below for a comprehensive overview of tuition, financial aid options, and resources.
