Jagath reviewed the history of Differential Tuition and how the approval process it went through. He also described the different ways accounting made between different tuition and course fees.
Amber presented data on how Differential Tuition was spent for Fall 2015 and Spring 2016. The slides she presented are attached.
Various questions were asked and suggestions made:

  • Can Differential Tuition be used to add electrical outlets in the 3rd floor study area?
  • It was mentioned that more TA’s would be beneficial.
  • The smaller courses for entry level courses has been viewed as a great benefit.

Amber will be working with the Website Master to get information about how Differential Tuition was spent on the college website. The students would like an email to be sent out as well so that they know how to access that information.
