Wichita State adds program fees for engineering, health professions - KELSEY RYAN AND ROY WENZL, The Wichita Eagle

Students in engineering and health professions at Wichita State University will be paying hundreds more to attend class this fall after the university expanded fees. That’s because WSU has extended a $50-per-credit-hour program fee to all classes – including general education classes – for most students in those colleges, which came as a surprise to many when they opened their bills in late July. The majority of those students – who make up about one-third of WSU’s student population– will pay $50 per credit hour on all university courses, including general education classes such as English and history, once they’ve been admitted to those colleges, according to Kansas Board of Regents documents. That comes on top of the 3.6 percent tuition and fee increase all WSU students will pay for fall classes, which start Aug. 17. http://www.kansas.com/news/local/education/article29767276.html
