GEO Tuition Differential Forum
When: Tuesday, October 19, at 5:00 PM
Where: Student Center WEST (828 S Wolcott), Chicago Room C.
Light refreshments will be served.
This will be a great way for everyone from across campus to come together and discuss how we will build a campaign to end tuition differentials. This is your chance to get involved and finally do something about tuition differentials.
These fees are really outrageous, they can range from $400 to $4600 per semester, are NOT waived by tuition waivers, and can increase at any time with little advance notice.
For the first time ever, graduate employees have a voice in tuition differential fees. If we work together, we can put a stop these unfair fees. Please come out to the Tuition Differentials Forum to share your experiences about differentials, and to get plugged into the next stage of our campaign to end them.
