On December 6, 2006, ASFLC, also known as the Student Senate passed a resolution to support a student fee increase, with only ONE Senator opposing. The increase was also supported by the Student Fee Review Board. The student increase is to fund components of a new College Union Building in the sum of approximately TWENTY MILLION dollars to begin construction in the fall of 2008.
This increase will be gradual adding $8.50 PER credit hour in the summer of 2007, to $17 PER credit hour in the year 2009. The FLC administration has committed to a minimum of $100,000 annually to help support the students in need of financial assistance due to this increase.
We, the undersigned, call on ASFLC, the President, and Board of Trustees to put a stop to the student fee increase.
Noting that this does not mean we are in opposition to a new CUB but the increase is a huge burden to place on students; especially when you take into account other increases (i.e. tuition, room & board, etc.) students will have to pay in addition to this increase in years to come.
