Thanks to all who responded to the question concerning computer fees. Randy Ri chter (RRICHTER@cause.colorado.edu) supplied a two-page list of institutions. Casey Green (EDUCOM-USC) used percentages: 16% charge computerfees to departmen t and service units, 20% will begin charging this year or are in process of rev iew, 23% are charging individual users, and 23% are reviewing this option. Other respondents indicated that computer fees vary greatly in amount and metho d of charging: University of New Brunswick, no computer fee, charges for laser printing University of Wisconsin, Platteville, no computer fee University of Wisconsin-Stout, only charge for printing University of North Texas, $3.25/sem. hr. credit University of Missouri, $4/credit hour University of Colorado at Boulder, $10/semester University of South Alabama, $10/class for College of Education, additional selected course fees UNC at Greensboro, $7/1 sem.hr., $14/2, $20/3 Penn State, $35/semester University of Iowa, $40/semester all full time students except engineers, Engineers = $100/semester George Washington, $100/semester St. Lawrence, $250 for installed ethernet card in dorms ($150 reimbursable) James Madison, computer literacy fee, component of comprehensive student fee, generates $523,000/yr. as established by legislation, fee fluctuates Finally, for those who are not regular readers of EDTECH, much discussion has b een generated about who pays for what and why, but the list of quotes is too long to include here.
