During its Monday meeting, the Northwest Board of Regents approved three fee increases for the upcoming 2017-18 academic year.
Northwest will increase its technology fee by $2 per credit hour to support its laptop replacement cycle as well as upgrades to classroom and meeting room projector technology.
The University’s campus recreation fee will increase by $3.65 per credit hour to enhance recreational programming, including club sports, intramurals, recreation center facility enhancements, programming and operations at the planned Northwest Multipurpose Complex, and the Mozingo Outdoor Education Recreation Area – a 320-acre parcel of land at Mozingo Lake Recreation Park – for student engagement and leadership development.
The third fee recommended by the Student Senate and approved by the Board is the implementation of a co‐curricular fee of 50 cents per credit hour to support Student Senate operations and student organizations.
Northwest students will receive new HP laptops next fall after the Board authorized the University’s purchase of $4.5 million in notebook computer and desktop upgrades.
