When I graduated from BYU, a private university, and enrolled at CU, a public university, one thing I was not expecting was student fees. BYU has student fees but they total something like $100 per semester and maybe $50 more if you wanted a parking pass. When I got to CU I found out that at public schools student fees are considerably higher. At CU tuition increases require approval from the state legislature, while fee increases can be enacted simply with the approval of the student government and the campus administration. So when the law school needs a new building and the legislature says no to tuition increases, guess where the money comes from?
I thought it might be interesting then to see what our loyal readers (and writers) at other schools have to deal with. Below is a quick survey of how much you get charged per semester. I'll release the results in a follow-up post in the next week or two. Enjoy!
