Get a BA Degree that Costs No More Than $10G? N.J. Education Reform Bill in Works

Get a BA Degree that Costs No More Than $10G? N.J. Education Reform Bill in Works
BY TOM HESTER
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

TRENTON – Legislation Assembly Democrats Troy Singleton, Mila Jasey and Joe Lagana sponsored to encourage New Jersey’s colleges and universities to offer baccalaureate degree programs that cost no more than $10,000 in tuition and fees was advanced Monday by an Assembly panel.

The bill (ACR-220) comes after a number of institutions of higher education in other states, including Texas and Florida, have taken measures to make attending college more affordable by developing $10,000 baccalaureate degree programs.

“The cost of attending an institution of higher education continues to increase, and many New Jersey students and their families find it difficult to afford the tuition and fees required for enrollment,” said Singleton (D-Burlington). “We’ve worked hard over the last several months to pass higher education reform bills, and this is another piece of that effort. A person’s level of education continues to be one of the most significant factors in determining his economic well-being. With many highly-skilled workers competing for a limited number of job openings, it’s imperative that high school graduates be able to afford to attend college and attain the skills necessary to compete in the 21st century workplace.”
