Education and Technology Fee explanation

The Education and Technology Fee (ETF) advances the quality of learning experiences and outcomes for students. It does this by embracing emerging opportunities that differentiate the learning experience beyond what appropriated funding allows, while remaining accountable to students, the university, and the state, for return on technology investments.

Examples include but are not limited to equipment, software applications, supplies for educational materials, laboratory expenses, student computing labs and facilities, connectivity infrastructure and services to support student learning, learning spaces, and field trips.

Security Fee
