After a January announcement that Princeton University would hold the line on tuition for the 2007-08 academic year, it turns out that the school is the only four-year college in New Jersey that is not raising tuition costs. As a result, according to a report Sunday in the Star-Ledger, Princeton University has shed its status as the state's priciest four-year school as well. At $33,000 per year, Princeton University now ranks third highest in the state in tuition costs, with Drew University ($34,230 per year), and the Stephens Institute of Technology ($33,300) rounding out the top three, according to the report. Princeton University did raise undergraduate room and board rates for an overall fee increase of 4.2 percent following a vote by the school's trustees in January, but maintaining last year's tuition rates makes this the first time in 40 years that students and families have not been subjected to a tuition hike, according to PU officials. Strong performance by the University's investments and generous giving by school alumni were cited in keeping tuition rates. (MH)
