Agenda Item No. 8


Significant expenses that are arising within individual programs require the imposition of course-specific fees for some courses. These Special Fees are only charged to students enrolling in the specific courses and are dedicated to offsetting the expenses that arise in the offering of those courses.

New special fees that are proposed to be assessed for the first time include:

Computer and Information Sciences Lab Fee: A lab fee is being initiated to fund software licensing costs associated with this program. The proposed fee will generate about $22,000.

Education Course Fee: This fee is being established to fund travel costs associated with field observations. The proposed fee will generate about $5,000.

Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Sports Course Fee: This fee is being created to fund the travel costs associated with the supervision of fieldwork, cooperative education, and internships. The proposed fee will generate about $10,000.

Certification Course Fees: The Community and Technical College will charge lab fees for information technology certification courses. The amount charged will depend on the type of course and the number of credits. The fees will generate about $39,000.

Two existing fees are proposed to be increased:

Nursing Fee: The Nursing Fee is being increased from $20 to $30. The increase will be used to fund the increased costs of lab supplies and travel to remote clinical sites. The proposed increase will provide an additional $12,000.

Applied Music Fee: This fee is being increased from $280 per credit hour to $305 per credit hour to fund additional costs for individual music instruction. This proposed increase will provide an additional $6,000.

The following resolution is recommended for adoption by the Board:

RESOLVED, that the Shepherd College Board of Governors approves the schedule of increases in special course fees as presented in the agenda book of May 8, 2003.
