The Ramapo College community is aware of the uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic. As always and in an effort to respond to that uncertainty, we aim to provide clear options to assist you to stay enrolled and continue your college experience. The information below is meant to serve as a guide for you as you assess your personal financial situation now and in the future. We will all get through these times together. All undergraduate and graduate students may explore the options presented below.


The Ramapo College Board of Trustees approved no increase in the Fiscal Year 2022 Tuition and Fees

Overall, the College approved a 0.0% tuition and fee increase for Academic Year 2021-2022, meaning that the aggregate cost of Ramapo has not changed from last year. You will notice on your bill that effective Fall 2021, the College has collapsed all its mandatory fees into tuition. While this may look different in billing, the result is the same cost as Academic Year 2020-2021. This continues Ramapo’s effort to increase transparency and continue its focus on affordability for our students. A similar consolidation of fees was done in 2017 and this is the final step in completing this merge. It is the College’s view that tuition supports all aspects of the college experience and can properly be represented as one rate inclusive of campus services.


New Payment Plans Offered to Students

We are happy to share that we have new payment plans for Fall and Spring!

The College manages an in-house installment payment plan to assist students and parents in paying their term bill.
