The Kansas State Tuition and Fees Strategies Committee unanimously voted Tuesday evening to continue the current College of Agriculture’s $20 per-credit-hour fee and the College of Architecture, Planning and Design’s $40 per-credit-hour fee.
The College of Agriculture’s fee is to “maintain the high quality of education that students receive in the College of Agriculture” through room upgrades and more laboratory, hands-on experiences and graduate assistants.
The College of Architecture, Planning and Design uses their student fees for new technology and equipment, design-laboratory chairs and desks and the salaries of the coordinator and computer shop technologists.
The fees already exist, but all colleges are required to give a fee-review presentation to the committee every three years before a credit-hour fee renewal will be further considered. The fee proposals must be approved by President Richard Myers.
