Stop the University of Maryland's International Student Fee

This petition had 293 supporters

Beginning in Fall 2017, the University of Maryland will implement a fee for all newly enrolled international students. Full-time international students will be charged $125 per semester and part-time students will be charged $62.50 per semester. The university administration designed and approved this fee without standard oversight measures that are required by University System of Maryland policy, such as the Committee for the Review of Student Fees.

The lack of consultation in the process contradicts the University System of Maryland commitment to shared governance.

Please sign this petition to ask the university to delay the implementation of the fee so that it can pass through the steps already in place that ensure the full transparency and accountability of the University of Maryland's administration.
