Student Technology Fee

In spring 2017, WSU Vancouver joined WSU Pullman in incorporating a Student Technology Fee. The Associated Students of Washington State University Vancouver and the WSU Board of Regents approved a Student Technology Fee of $20 per student per semester for the purpose of funding student-geared projects and proposals that enhance the student experience and provide resources to address the technological needs of the campus for current and future students. The resulting enhancements are meant to promote ASWSUV’s mission which is founded on the core principles of advocacy, empowerment and access to educational resources.
