JMU‘s Full-Time student parking pass cost $300. Several of JMU classes have been moved online. For some students, the majority of their classes have been moved online. As an example, for one student in particular, three of the eight classes are moved online. A parking pass should be reduced because students will not be on campus full-time. If we use a three out of eight example, that is a 37.5% change in the expected time that they would be on campus. That is a 62.5% remainder of time that they would be expected to be on campus. In comparison to a full-year pass, this would yield a reduction to $187.5 or, for a semester, $93.75. Students are pennypinching due to the coronavirus and lack of work in some cases. There’s also been a slight increase to tuition. So students need to leave where they can get it. Each case is different, but if a common reduction could be initiated, it will save students a significant amount of money, and will make this semester easier for them financially.
