As of this morning, UNLV and UNR have decided to implement a “pandemic charge” of $6 per credit hour for undergraduate and $8 for graduate classes. This added cost is unnecessary as there are many services, such as the recreation center, in which the students are still paying for but have no access to it. Along with the fact that many of our classes are set to be remote, the cost of tuition is already out of hand before including the pandemic charge they have decided to add. The addition of this charge can be detrimental to students as some already struggle to pay off tuition as it is and due to the pandemic it is an added cost that many students can not afford as they have lost jobs and other opportunities in and outside the campus. As a state that sets its goals on improving education, we demand that UNLV, UNR and NSHE overturn this action and allocate funds from elsewhere to help students remain in school and further their education without the unnecessary costs.
