Apology Over Expanded Fees at Wichita State

KSAL StaffAugust 7, 2015

The dean of Wichita State University’s College of Engineering has apologized to students for failing to warn them earlier about fee increases.

The Wichita Eagle reports Royce Bowden emailed 3,000 students from his college this week, apologizing that more information wasn’t communicated sooner  about the fee hikes.

The expanded fee charges both engineering and health professions students $50 per credit hour for every class they take. They had been paying the $50-per-credit-hour fee only for courses they take for their major.

About 75 engineering students have called student leaders expressing shock at bills that, in some cases, added more than $1,000 to the student costs.

Wichita State spokesman Lou Heldman says the university president plans to meet with student leaders soon to answer questions.
