Purpose of Tech Fee
Technology has become an integral component of the instructional and learning process. A direct consequence of this growth in the use of technology has caused higher education to look for ways to fund its use. To meet this challenge, starting with 2000-2001 academic year the University System of Georgia has imposed a mandatory technology fee to help support the campus technology infrastructure and underwrite some of the costs associated with academic computing and classroom technology. Based on board policy, the use of these fees is restricted to enhancing campus technology services and support, which directly and visibly benefits the students.
