About the Technology Fee
On February 25, 2002, the CUNY Board of Trustees adopted a resolution on the Student Technology Fee. The Resolution was to the effect that "the Board of Trustees establish a technology fee . . . effective Fall 2002. Revenue from this fee will be retained by the colleges to improve computer services for their students and faculty."
The Board of Trustees amended the Student Technology Fee at its June 2013 meeting, increasing the fee to $125 per semester for full-time students and $62.50 per semester for part-time students, effective Spring 2014.
To ensure that the Technology Fee is utilized to generate maximum direct benefits for our students in terms of greater and easier access to technologies and improved services, each college is required to establish a special Student Technology Fee task force or committee. The committee is responsible for seeking input from the campus-wide community, assessing the technology needs of the college, and developing recommendations on the allocation of the Student Technology Fee to meet student-oriented technology needs.
Proposals for Student Technology Fee funding are requested in the fall and reviewed once a year, on a schedule determined by CUNY, in winter or spring. Critical unanticipated replacements or repairs are considered at other times throughout the year. Funding for approved proposals or projects typically becomes available in the mid-October timeframe.
