Do not charge students a 2.5% "convenience fee" for paying their tuition.

Many in-state and out-of-state U of A students cannot afford the price of tuition up front. This will add an additional $259.75 fee (for in-state undergrad) and an additional $676.80 fee (for out-of-state undergrad) students per year for simply paying their bill via debit or credit card. Contracting with Nelnet instead of using the current Bursar payment method will discriminate against many U of A students who already cannot afford the cost of their education. Tuition at the U of A has already increased over 40% the past 5 years, our students don't need another fee. As a student body, we ask you to either decrease tuition or get rid of the 2.5% "convenience" fee. We ask you to commit to making quality education affordable for everyone.

To:
University of Arizona
Do not charge students a 2.5% "convenience fee" for paying their tuition.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      If students are already paying for college on time and in full, they shouldn't have to pay even more just so they can pay and get an education. That is just like paying someone so you can just pay them! College is EXTREMELY expensive on it's own. And this "convenience fee" is not convenient at all! Please stop charging students to pay you!

      I am a poor college student who understands financial struggles. The college is making enough money off of tuition. It doesn't need a "convenience fee."
