In his testimony before the Senate Budget Committee, Rutgers President Richard McCormick said the Governor’s budget plan for higher education is acceptable. Higher education gets about two billion dollars in state aid, 6.8 percent of the total state budget. McCormick said, at that level, tuitions will probably rise by high single-digit numbers next year, although much depends on collective bargaining.
