N.J. college to raise tuition, fees by 12 percent
Officials have allowed a New Jersey college to boost tuition and fees by more than 12 percent.
Ramapo College got permission to exceed a state-mandated 3 percent cap by assessing a separate capital improvement fee of $1,000 for each full-time student.
The school says it needs to repair the main academic building's roof and the heating and air conditioning system at the student center.
Ramapo's tuition and fees will cost $12,088 for the 2009-10 school year.
The state had capped tuition increases as a condition of getting federal stimulus money.
