The Rutgers Tuition Estimator can provide an idea of tuition and fees. However, please note:

  • The answer to the question "At which campus will you be registered?" is "New Brunswick." 
  • The answer to the question "Will you be attending classes on a university campus or elsewhere (i.e., a community college)?" depends on which program option is being chosen.
    • If a student intends to attend on-campus, the response should be "On a Rutgers University Campus."
    • If a student intends to attend online, the response should be "Outside of the university." Student fees are slightly different for these two options.
