The first Student Computer Fees were levied in 1985. We located an article from October 7, 1985 in The Daily Utah Chronicle entitled “The Facts about the Computer Program and the Special Student Fee.” A PDF of the article can be downloaded from this URL:
The fee is determined by the number of credit hours a student takes per semester. Since the 2010-2011 school year, fees started at $20.42 for one credit hour and topped out at $113.52 for 15 or more credit hours. The fee was increased starting with Fall Semester 2017. It currently starts at $XX.XX (update coming) for one credit hour and tops out at $XXX.XX (update coming) for 15 or more credit hours. All Student Computing Fee allocations ultimately are approved by the General Student Fee Board.
