Tuition and fees for full-time undergraduate students at Richard Stockton College in Galloway Township will increase 3 percent, or almost $360 for the 2012-13 school year.

The college Board of Trustees approved the increase at its meeting Wednesday at the college.

The annual cost for tuition and fees will increase from $11,963 to $12,322.

The board in May approved a three percent increase in the cost of housing and a two percent increase in the cost of meal plans. Costs for those items vary depending on the type of housing and the meal plan chosen. On average the total cost for a student living and eating on campus will be about $22,725, not including books and incidental costs.
