College textbook prices have risen 1,041 percent Since 1977.
The average student should budget $1,240 - $1,440 for textbooks and course materials in 2018-19 in the US.* The average budget in New Jersey is $1,471 and $1,200 at New Jersey City University according to VALENJ. **
The cost barrier kept 2.4 million low and moderate-income college-qualified high school graduates from completing college in the previous decade.***
