In light of continuing budget cuts, the Biology Dept. here at Radford
Univ. is considering the use of lab fees for the first time. The dept.
has asked me to gather some background information on lab fees at other
institutions, particularly those in Virginia since we are a
state-supported university. First off I'd like to find out just how many
colleges are charging lab fees (either directly or indirectly) so please
respond even if you have no fees. For those of you with lab fees I'd
like to know 1) What is the fee and how it is collected? 2) Are the fees
the same for all courses (major and non-major)? 3) Is the fee per
semester or per course? and finally 4) Is the lab fee the entire basis
for your course budget or is it used to supplement a regular budget?
Thanks for your time. Please respond to me directly at
gzagursk at runet.edu so as to not bother the entire group. If there is
enough interest and responses I'll be happy to post a summary of
results. Once again, thanks for your time.
