New Multicultural Center to Open in 2022
Atlantic City, N.J. – A new Multicultural Center in Galloway and upgrades to the Performing Arts Center are among the almost $10.5 million in facilities projects planned for 2021-22.
The Stockton University Board of Trustees approved the capital budget and a $263.4 million 2021-22 operating budget at the July 14 meeting at the Stockton Atlantic City campus.
The trustees also approved tuition and fees for 2021-22. In-state full-time undergraduate students will pay $7,307 per semester for up to 20 credits, a 2% or $143 increase.
Out-of-state students will pay $11,098 per semester, 2% a $217 increase. Graduate programs will cost $863 per credit, a 2% increase of $17 per credit.
A flat fee of $675 per credit will be charged for exclusively online graduate certificate and degree programs.
Room and board rates for 2021-22 were approved by the board in May and vary based on the housing type and location and type of meal plan.
The operating budget includes $21 million in student aid, including $18 million in scholarships and need-based grants.
“More than 80 percent of our students receive some type of financial aid,” President Harvey Kesselman said. “This budget continues our commitment to ensuring that Stockton remains affordable while also providing the services and programs students need to be successful in college and after they graduate.”
Among the 27 capital projects are additional parking, walkway and sidewalk expansion, athletic field replacements and improvements and upgrades and replacement of flooring and furniture in housing.
The new Multicultural Center in Lower F-Wing is scheduled to open in Spring 2022. It was developed by a campus committee as a place for students to gather and hold meetings and events.
