Registration Fees Won't Substitute State Funds

    Dear Editor,

    I write to correct an important error in the Oct. 29 front page article entitled “Registration Fees Pulled from Student Services.”

    The article mistakenly stated that, due to cutbacks in state funds, Student Affairs is channeling registration fees toward areas normally funded by state funds, such as the Registrar’s Office, Office of Admissions and Relations with Schools, etc.

    This has not occurred. No such use of registration fees is planned, at least on this campus.

    Student Affairs, supported by the Registration Fee Advisory Committee’s recommendations, has worked very hard in a difficult budgetary environment to maintain the distinctive character of the registration fee for student co-curricular and developmental programs and services — not for core institutional or academic functions appropriate for the education fee and state funds.

    — Edward J. Spriggs
    Associate Vice Chancellor,
    Student Affairs
