Student fee hearing is set for Feb. 28
Lewis-Clark State College will hold a public hearing of proposed student fees for the 2008 fiscal year on Feb. 28 at noon in the Library Teleconference Communication room on the LCSC campus.
The hearing will allow students and the public to comment on proposed student fee increases, which would become effective for the 2007 Summer session.
LCSC administrators are proposing a 5 percent increase in the full-time student fee, which would equate to an increase of $97.50. Revenue generated by the fee increase will be used to support the ongoing costs of the institution.
According to LCSC administrators there are no proposed changes to the Student Technology Fee, any of the Facility Fees, or Activity Fees.
The proposal includes increases to credit hour fee for both part-time instruction and summer term instruction of $10 per credit hour (a 5.2 percent increase) and to nonresidential tuition of $173 per semester (a 5 percent increase.
Students who cannot attend the meeting in person but wish to submit written testimony should send their comments to the Office of Vice President for Finance and Administration in the Administration Building.
After the public hearing, LCSC will present its fee increase to the Idaho State Board of Education, which will make the final decision.
