It is completely unfair that in the middle of the pandemic, the University increases prices. All businesses are struggling and reducing costs and prices to keep up with the dire consequences of the pandemic.

We don’t actually have the same access to world class faculty during the pandemic, contrary to Morty’s statements

Requesting that the financial decision making authorities of NU have mercy upon Wildcat families & students. Many are already struggling financially ....

Rejecting the $8.5 million funding from the CARES Act and essentially passing on the cost to families through the tuition increase, all while laying off staff anyway, is misguided and unfair to all Northwestern students and families. Northwestern needs to do better. Other universities offering tuition discounts, slashing tuition, and/or offering help to those who don’t qualify for financial aid are doing the right thing.

The quality of online, remote instruction is not worth the current tuition rate, much less a 3.5% increase!

Hello!

My name is Tyra and I am a current student at the University of Maryland - College Park. So many of us students are asking our instituions for the same provisions.

Is there any way we can collaborate to gain more national traction? We can sign each other's petitions, use the hashtags #LowerUniFees #NoResourceNoFee, and more to apply pressure. We would be stronger together than apart. Already one other institution has reached out and we have some good ideas.

My email is treed127@umd.edu. I would love to talk further and potentially start a coalition with many other students.

Our petition details can be found here:

I look forward to discussing soon!

Thanks for adding your voice.

Students should not be paying the same rates for remote learning.
