Title: SJSU Speak Out Against New Fees
START DATE: Thursday November 08
TIME: 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM

SJSU Art Quad
San Jose, California

San Jose State University
1 Washington Sq, San Jose, CA
Event Type: Protest
There are 3 new fee proposals coming up in the Nov. 13th and 14th Board of Trustees meeting. They want to impose them even if Prop 30 passes and there are no budget cuts this year!

Super Senior Fee: $372 extra per unit if you exceed 150 semester units or 225 quarter units

Course Repeat Fee: $100 extra per unit for re-taking a course AND you cannot enroll in more than 15 units

Third Tier Fee: $200 extra per unit for any additional units (beyond 16 units) in one term

During the September Meeting, CSU Chancellor Reed argued that these fees are necessary, making comments such as,
“Students are gaming and abusing the system.”
“It is the super-seniors fault, they are hogging all the seats.”
“Double majors are greedy and taking all the classes.”
“We want to make room for REAL students who will graduate in 4 years.”

WTF?!

We are not gaming the system, the system is gaming us.

Take a stand on Nov. 8th
Until then fill out this survey!
