TOMS RIVER — Ocean County College has announced it will not increase student tuition and fees next year, maintaining costs at their 2021 level — the first New Jersey community college to make such an announcement. Tuition will remain at $175 per credit for the 2022 fiscal year. The College Board of Trustees adopted the resolution at its January 28th meeting.
Last year, OCC bundled the cost of books and electronic course materials, as well as college and student fees with tuition.
The freeze on the all-inclusive tuition rate is another effort to keep OCC affordable and assist students in reaching their educational goals — especially important as families struggle with the economic challenges brought on by the pandemic.
“We are pleased to be able to offer this benefit to our students and our community, especially during this time of financial stress on so many,” said Dr. Jon H. Larson, OCC President. “The College has carefully managed its resources, and our students will reap the benefits of that fiscal responsibility.”
We are Ocean, and we are here for you.
