Freeze in Tuition at Brookdale For 2013 - 2014

Freeze in Tuition at Brookdale Community College For 2013-2014.

Brookdale Community College’s Board of Trustees approved the College’s proposed
FY 2014 budget, which includes a freeze in tuition rates for 2013-14 academic
year, at their monthly meeting last night. 

Monmouth Countyresidents will continue to pay $115.50 per credit hour with a maximum of $1732 per semester. General service fees, which are 24% of the tuition rate, will maintain at $27.72 per credit hour.

“By serving as careful stewards of public resources, the College has been able to continue preparing students to become the educated workforce of the future; transfer to the college or university of their choice and engage in lifelong learning. I would like to thank the Board of Trustees for their support; I appreciate their dedication and continued commitment to our students and our community,” said President Dr. Maureen Murphy at the January 24 Board of Trustees meeting at the Lincroft campus.

The College’s Operating Budget is $92,270,093, which reflects a 3.1% decrease compared to the FY 13 budget. The proposed budget supports the major goals and objectives of the College, allowing Brookdale to maintain its open door policy, support enrollment, existing programs and maintain the infrastructure of the College.

Brookdale’s budget is subject to final approval at the Board of School Estimate on February 28 at 1:00 pm, at the Monmouth County Hall of Records.

“By serving as careful stewards of public resources..." Well, maybe now they might be "careful stewards" of them, but we certainly saw that was not how it was before. However, this is a good thing. Now if publishers could only make textbooks more reasonable to purchase...

Make sure you shop around for textbooks - Amazon, Half.com, etc. By law they have to publish the ISBN and you can compare prices. I don't know about Brookdale, but some Schools offer textbook renting which is much cheaper. I have seen a decrease in prices since my son started College in 2009.
