New A&M Student Services Fee Approved By RegentsFeatured Stories, News Monday, May 7th, 2012
Next fall at Texas A&M University, students will notice a new fee.
The A&M System Board of Regents approved President Bowen Loftin’s request to establish the student success fee, a revenue-neutral way to address reductions in state funding.
$14 million dollars will be moved next year and $21 million the following year to the new fee account.
Dr. Loftin gave the regents more than a dozen examples of where the reallocated money could be spent. Some examples are student retention, increasing transfer students, the quality enhancement plan (Aggies Commit), high-impact learning experiences (undergraduate research, study abroad, etc.), and the infrastructure to support these efforts.
Dr. Loftin intends to establish a working group to address the new student success fee, similar to how a funding reallocation process was executed last fall.
