Course Fees

Course fees are used to enhance the educational experience of students and may be charged when other funding support for a specific course is inadequate or unavailable. General costs related to the development, instruction, and assessment of courses are borne by the department and college. With the exception of equipment replaced on a rotating schedule, course fees should be used each semester for the benefit of students who paid the fees.
