State Universities to Boost Fees for Students; "Economic Recovery Surcharge" to Help Cover State Cuts
The presidents of the state's three universities want students to help cover a financial shortfall due to state budget cuts by paying more in fees.
President Michael Crow of Arizona State University wrote in a letter to the Arizona Board of Regents that students should pay an extra $600 "economic recovery surcharge" per semester, beginning this fall.
So, students should look for the "economic recovery dividend" payment once the state's back on its feet, right? Fat chance.
