Student Technology $35.00 Per Quarter

On April 2, 1999 the Associated Students of Eastern Washington University recommended to Eastern's Board of Trustees that a mandatory technology fee be assessed on all Eastern students. The fee was implemented in accordance with RCW288.15.051 and the conditions described below. The technology fee is used to recover, in whole or in part, the costs of providing and maintaining services to students that include: access to the internet, e-mail, computer and multimedia work stations and laboratories and computer software. Fee dollars will be focused on two main goals:
(1) provide students with internet service, and (2) renew equipment in the General Use computer labs. The student technology fee is assessed at $3.50 per credit to a cap of $35.00 per quarter.
