LINCROFT – Brookdale Community College’s Board of Trustees has approved the college’s proposed the fiscal year 2014 budget, which includes a freeze in tuition rates for the 2013-14 academic year.
Monmouth County residents will continue to pay $115.50 per credit hour with a maximum of $1,732 per semester. General service fees, which are 24 percent 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 during the Jan. 24 board of trustees meeting.
The college’s operating budget is $92,270,093, which reflects a 3.1 percent decrease compared to the fiscal year 2013 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 by the board of school estimate at 1 p.m. Feb. 28 at the Monmouth County Hall of Records in Freehold.
