A College of Business Administration fee proposal of $15 per credit hour was approved by the Tuition and Fees Strategies Committee Thursday morning. The proposal was passed on a 9-1-0 vote, with Kurt Lockwood, senior in agricultural economics, as the dissenting voice.
The meeting was held in the place of Tuesday’s meeting, which was postponed due to inclement weather.
A fee proposal from K-State Libraries of $1 per credit hour was discussed. The fee proposal as written would apply to students on all K-State campuses, but could be rewritten to only apply to students attending the Manhattan campus.
An academic building support fee proposal was also discussed. The fee increase of $2.10 per credit hour would raise $1 million per year, which would be used to cover costs of construction for the new College of Business Administration building. Over 15 years, the fee would generate $15 million to pay back an internal K-State loan.
