Stockton Offers Discount on Summer Tuition
Galloway, N.J. – Stockton University will offer a discounted summer tuition and housing package for students who want to live, work and learn at the shore this summer.
Stockton will offer a 20% discount on undergraduate tuition and fees during the 2023 summer sessions for students who live in the Stockton Atlantic City Residential Complex for the summer.
The Board of Trustees approved the discount at the Dec. 7 meeting.
The goal is to give college students the opportunity to live and work in the Atlantic City area during the summer while also continuing their education.
"Summer housing provides students a 12-month housing experience for those that want to work, study or need stable housing,” said Stockton Executive Director for Residential Life Steven Radwanski. “Stockton provides them with a year-round home while they are preparing for their futures.”
The Stockton Atlantic City Residential Complex, located at Albany Avenue and the Boardwalk, opened in fall 2018 and can house more than 530 students. Later this summer, Stockton will open a second residence hall nearby at Atlantic and South Providence avenues, across from O’Donnell Memorial Park. The building will feature apartment-style living for more than 400 students.
Summer housing begins May 15 and runs through Aug. 13. Stockton academic-year residential students may opt-in to a 12-month contract for summer for an additional fee.
More than 400 courses are being offered over the summer, with over 250 offered online. With the 20% discount, undergraduate in-state students would pay $370 per credit, or $1,480 per four-credit course, a savings of $372. The rate for undergraduate out-of-state students is $546 per credit or $2,184 per course.
Registration for summer courses opens on Jan. 5. There are three summer sessions starting in May and June and lasting either six or 10 weeks, plus 12-week internship and independent study programs.
