Tuition and Fees for 2013-14
I am in the process of establishing this year’s Task Force on Tuition and Fees. I am asking the Task Force to take into consideration the entire package of expenses borne by students. Specifically, I want them to not only look at tuition and course fees, but to also look at auxiliary and other mandatory fees affecting students, i.e., parking fees, health fee, meal plan fees, housing rates, IT fees, specific-designated fees (rec center), etc. In addition, I am asking the task force to review our tuition policies.
Any proposed new fees or increases or decreases to existing fees need to be reviewed by this committee. Please send all fee requests to Bob Goldstein and Mike Curtin by December 3 so that the task force will have adequate time to review your recommendations and make a recommendation to the Office of the President. It would also be helpful to the Task Force if you will send along a list of all fees/expenses charged by your unit with a brief impact statement for each fee/expense—even though you propose no change. This will help the Task Force when it looks at the “complete package of expenses borne by students."
I’ve attached a copy of the Procedures for Establishing and Reviewing Course and Non-Course Related Student Fees (PDF) as well as the Fee Request Form (DOC). If you have any questions, please contact Bob Goldstein, Associate Provost for Academic Accountability, Institutional Research and Effectiveness, at 852-6169.
I thank you in advance for your cooperation.
