NEW BRUNSWICK — Rutgers University students will learn today how much more they will be paying to attend classes this fall as the school’s governing board meets to set tuition and fees for the 2013-14 school year.

Student protesters are expected to call for a tuition freeze at the 3 p.m. meeting at Winants Hall on the Rutgers campus. But university officials said holding tuition at last year’s level is unlikely.

During the 2012-13 school year, the average Rutgers in-state, undergraduate paid $13,073 in annual tuition and fees. Once room and board was added in, the average student living on campus paid a total bill of $24,043.

Several New Jersey colleges — including Rowan University, Stockton College and Essex County College — have announced tuition freezes for this fall, citing increased financial pressures on students and families.
