Fee Relief GRANT
What is the Fee Relief Grant?
In Fall 2019 the campus underwent a fee increase process via alternative consultation for the Instructionally Related Activity Fee and the Student Health and Wellness Fee (formerly known as the Health Services Fee). Included in the fee increase process was a 3% return to aid component to help to offset the impact of this fee increase to support students who were experiencing a financial hardship. This means that 3% of the funds collected for each fee are set aside to support students who are unable to pay the fee increase amount. These funds are available to students enrolled in the San Diego Campus beginning Fall 2020 and are referred to as the Fee Relief grant.
