Do not charge students a 2.5% "convenience fee" for paying their tuition.
This petition had 8,072 supporters
Many in-state and out-of-state U of A students cannot afford the price of tuition up front. This will add an additional $259.75 fee (for in-state undergrad) and an additional $676.80 fee (for out-of-state undergrad) students per year for simply paying their bill via debit or credit card. Contracting with Nelnet instead of using the current Bursar payment method will discriminate against many U of A students who already cannot afford the cost of their education. Tuition at the U of A has already increased over 40% the past 5 years, our students don't need another fee. As a student body, we ask you to either decrease tuition or get rid of the 2.5% "convenience" fee. We ask you to commit to making quality education affordable for everyone.
