Student fee increase fails

The referendum for an increase in the student fee was 4 percent short of passing the student body, according to a press released by the Special Elections Commission Wednesday morning.

If passed, Tuesday’s referendum would have increased the current student fee of $1 per credit hour per semester to a flat fee of $30 for undergraduates and $20 for graduate students per semester.
