Regents Discuss Possible Fee Increases For Students In 2017

The Board of Regents is discussing increases in general activity fees for multiple state universities, reports the Rapid City Journal.

More information will be provided to the board for their meeting in December, and a final decision will be made in March.  If passed, the general activity fees could increase at four of the six state universities: Black Hills State University, Northern State University, South Dakota State University and the University of South Dakota.  The fees being discussed are charged to each student per credit hour; and although the raises suggested are modest, ranging from 4 to 9 dollars, the impact over four years ranges from 470 to 970 dollars.  The money raised is intended to go towards campus buildings, student services and programming, and athletic programs.  South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, which already has the highest per student fees in the state, will not see an increase.
