Subject: FY12 Budget and Tuition and Fee Schedule

The NJIT Board of Trustees has approved the schedule of tuition and fees for the 2011-12 Academic Year and the Fiscal Year 2012 Operating and Capital Budgets. Detailed information can be found on the web at:

Programmatic and campus enhancements in the Fiscal Year 2012 Budget include:

  • Faculty recruitment consistent with the Strategic Plan
  • Facility upgrades including
    • Initiation of a studio expansion project for the College of Architecture and Design to accommodate programmatic and enrollment expansion
    • Further architectural design work, repair and renovation for the Central King Building
    • Upgrades in the Jim Wise Theatre
  • Information technology infrastructure and laboratory equipment upgrades
  • Various campus-wide maintenance projects

Revenues for Fiscal Year 2012 are projected to total approximately $324 million. The State base appropriation remains the same as Fiscal Year 2011, less an allocation of one-time Federal Stimulus funds received last year through the State. A combination of State funding, a 2% projected enrollment increase, a 4.5% increase in tuition and fees for in-state undergraduate students, and a 6% increase in tuition and fees for out-of-state and graduate students allows increased cost and enhancement and maintenance obligations to be met.
