Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, it's been devastating to see so many people become unemployed and laid off. Many families and individuals have increasingly been effected by this matter and in result have no source of regular income that they very much heavily rely on. Although the issuance of Trump's checks and filing for unemployment are temporary solutions to assist during this overwhelming time, they are barely enough to stretch by. Education has been and always will be a student's top priority and valued at high importance. Despite transitioning to virtual classes for the rest of the semester, it's not reasonable to have students pay the regular full tuition for the upcoming summer or fall semester, especially during a time where a mass majority of a university's students are struggling financially, mentally, and physically. 

A reduction, waiver, or any other type of assistance that will lessen that amount college students must pay for their education needs to be provided/implemented. This petition is to pursue the help needed in order for the substantial amount of college students to further continue their education. Unfortunately, without a steady source of income, many students, like myself, will have to consider putting their education to a halt. Not only is this an excruciating decision to have to make for many individuals, it's a loss that must be taken. This also affects the vast amounts of universities. Without tuition payment, there may not be enough revenue to continue to fund themselves as it normally would and operate. Payment plans are always a helpful option, but it wouldn't make a difference considering there aren't enough jobs to provide those payments. If there were changes made to the tuition charged, the universities and students may continue to function coherently alongside each other.

Virtual instruction may be sufficient and as effective as face-to-face lectures for some, but it can be less insightful for others. Given the circumstances, virtual instruction may be the best option but it's not fair to price our education at one we don't necessarily prefer and most importantly, one we can't afford. By signing this petition, we can work together to bring light to each student's concerns regarding how students will be able to afford to continue pursuing their education. The board, universities, and the Council of Postsecondary Education can make this change. Summer tuition should only include charges that are relevant. There is no longer a need to apply a fee for "health center fee," "health facilities fee," "student ID fee," or "Titan Participation fee." Each campus may vary, but these are additional purposeless charges that aren't necessary in order to conduct virtual instruction. Miscellaneous fees as such should be voided from student's tuition from the next and upcoming semesters. Please share this and bring awareness to help every student afford their education!
