What do my classes pay for?
Special Course Fees or Assessments are authorized by the Idaho State Board of Education. The School of Engineering at ISU charges course fees in some undergraduate and graduate courses in order to pay for various consumables and equipment in those courses.
Idaho State Board of Education GOVERNING POLICIES AND PROCEDURES SECTION: V. FINANCIAL AFFAIRS Subsection: R. Establishment of Fees August 2006.
Special Course Fees or Assessments
A special course fee is a fee required for a specific course or special activity and, therefore, not required of all students enrolled at the institution. Fees such as penalty assessments, library fines, continuing education fees, parking fines, laboratory fees, breakage fees, fees for video outreach courses, late registration fees, and fees for special courses offered for such purposes as remedial education credit that do not count toward meeting degree requirements are considered special course fees. All special course fees or penalty assessments, or changes to such fees or assessments, are established and become effective in the amount and at the time specified by the chief executive officer of the institution. The chief executive officer is responsible for reporting these fees to the Board upon Request.
