Dancer bill incentivizies colleges to lower tuition for remote learning

TRENTON, N.J. – Public and private universities that provide the majority of its classes online due to Covid-19 and don’t lower tuition would have its state aid reduced under a bill introduced by Assemblyman Ron Dancer.

“Students take on a lot of debt for the full slate of services and opportunities college provides in addition to education,” said Dancer (R-Monmouth). “If they can’t enjoy those services and opportunities, they shouldn’t have to pay for them. Hopefully, colleges choose to save students money instead of losing state aid.”

Under the bill (A4499), the state secretary of Higher Education would determine a methodology for how much state aid colleges would lose
