WSU Regents eliminate some fees

The Washington State University Board of Regents reduced some of the mandatory fees students at the Pullman campus have to pay during the fall and spring semesters at its Friday meeting.

The board voted to not collect $25 of the $279 student and activities fee in the coming spring semester, which will result in a $478,000 decrease in allocations to various groups on campus.

The regents also reduced the Chinook Student Center fee this fall semester by $5, the student health fee by $40 for the spring semester and the student recreation fee by $5 for the spring semester.

The reductions happened after students voiced concerns that they were paying for services they couldn’t utilize after WSU switched to remote instruction in March. (Lewiston Tribune)
