LOGAN – Utah State University President Noelle Cockett said Tuesday the university will reduce fees this fall by $150 for students at its main campus and by $95 for students at its statewide campuses.
University spokesman Tim Vitale said the discussion about fee reduction has been underway for months.
“The presidents more recently have been meeting to talk specifically about fees in the context of the COVID weight. We worked closely with Ruth Watkins at the University of Utah, recognizing that we are the state’s two research institutions and our costs are different than costs of some of the other institutions, so that’s really what that meant.”
Vitale said, if expected new federal support is approved, there might be another reduction.
“Our fingers are crossed. We’re hoping that happens, we expect it will happen and if it does our president has made a commitment that we will use those funds to reduce the fees even more.”
Fees support long-term investments into university infrastructure costs as well as services.
