We as students are petitioning for student charges that student's should have the freedom to opt out of their discretion because it represents students rights. 

Due to the challenging times that the global outbreak of  COVID-19 has upended students life's leading for Mavericks opt not to utilize UTA services. Every student is being charged for service's they will not use during the fall, that does not mean they should pay for services they will not use, every student has every right to opt out of these unnecessary charges. 

UTA states, "fees are used to cover the long - term cost of offering our students these services and resources". Well students should opt out of using these services at their discretion without a question because every student deserves to make that decision not UTA or the UT system. 

While UTA states that "regardless of the choice to use the service or not, they will be charged without any option. Students have their own rights, they should make decisions like paying for a recreational fee that most student's might not feel comfortable, and if they don't want to use the recreational facilities they should not be forced to pay for it because they said so.

For example, if a student stated that they won't use the recreational facility because the student does not plan on going there. So, the student should not be forced to pay for that fee because it is a service that the student does not want to use. If a student does not want to use that service, they should not be charged. The only part they should be charged is their tuition which is the main core of their educational needs. 

Students do not have choices when it comes to student services being provided, the school provides a service a student might not need, they cannot opt out it. This petition serves as a voice from students who demand change.

Students right now are struggling to make ends meet, they might not be able to be sustainable during the fall semester, any services they are paying but they are not using will be a waste of money for many students who are facing financial hardships or who are limited on funds. 

We voice our concerns, to be heard, so change can happen for the greater good of students. The right thing must be done, so students can succeed with options to pay for services or not if they choose not buy it because that is every student right. 

President Lim, Teik C I encourage to hear students by making this change for the students of UTA who would like to have the freedom to make this choice of buying certain services or not.
