The overall purpose of the Student Technology Fee is to enhance student access to information technologies which are in addition to those available prior to the fee's creation.

The overall purpose of the Student Technology Fee is to enhance student access to information technologies which are in addition to those available prior to the fee's creation. Information technologies are defined as applications and solutions that result in a student's ability to access information for learning and that meet the University's educational mission.

Revenues from the Student Technology Fee may not replace funds which were previously allocated to information technologies unless the funds being replaced are from student segregated or user fees.

Specific uses of the Student Technology Fee will relate to the following broad goals, which have been identified as top priorities by the Oshkosh Student Association:

  1. Additional staffing and services for computer labs.
  2. Additional student computer workstations or upgrade of existing computers.
  3. Additional or upgraded software in student computer labs.
  4. Additional training for students on use of computers, software, e-mail, networks, etc.
  5. Networking, e-mail, and/or dial-in access for students.

OSA (Oshosh Student Association) may propose modifications and/or additions to these priorities.  Expenditures from the Student Technology Fee should also relate to goals identified in the University's annual Strategic Plan for Information Technology.  Disposition of student technology fees is recommended to the Chancellor and/or the Chancellor’s designee, by the Student Technology Fee Committee (STFC).
