The NSHE Board of Regents approved a $5 per credit Student Technology Fee effective in 2017. This decision was made with the consensus of students from colleges throughout the NSHE system.
The purpose of the fee is to increase access to technology for students.
TMCC's Technology Committee is charged with recommending how the Student Technology Fee will be used.
