on proposed Student Health Fee increase
Thursday, May 5,
from 3 to 4 p.m.
in the Multicultural Center.
Officials from the Division of Student Affairs and Student Health Services have requested that the Student Fee Advisory Committee forward a proposal to President Conoley for her to consider an increase in the campus' Student Health Center Fee. The increased fee will help prevent the elimination or reduction of services at the health center while adding to its offerings in the areas of mental health services, wellness/health promotion and specialty clinics.
The amount of the proposed increase is $60 per year, which would raise the current $90 per year fee up to $150. However, the increase would be phased in over two years with the Year 1 (Spring 2017) increase being $40 a year ($20 a semester), and the Year 2 (Spring 2018) increase adding the remaining $20 per year ($10 per semester).
In addition, the Student Health Center’s Facility Fee would increase from $6 to $10 per year (from $3 to $5 a semester). This small increase will allow the health center to upgrade exam rooms and patient areas.
