For a number of years, the SIU Carbondale College of Business (formerly known as the College of Business and Administration) had been assessing College of Business majors a technology fee of $6.00 per credit hour for Fall and Spring semesters up to twelve semester hours and Summer up to six semester hours. This technology fee is being phased out and is being subsumed under the Differential Tuition surcharge (see next paragraph). Consequently, students will be charged either the technology fee or the Differential Tuition surcharge but not both.
Starting Fall 2008, the College of Business has implemented a Differential Tuition surcharge of 15% of applicable tuition for declared College of Business majors that are new students (entering undergraduate or entering graduate students as of Fall 2008 or later). The Differential Tuition surcharge will be assessed at the applicable in-state or alternate tuition rate. If students are charged the Differential Tuition surcharge, the technology fee (see previous paragraph) will not be assessed.
Starting Fall 2008, the College of Business has implemented a "Minor Program Fee" that is equal to 15% of 15 credit hours of applicable in-state tuition for declared College of Business minors. This fee is applicable only for new students (entering undergraduate students as of Fall 2008 or later). Students who started prior to Fall 2008 will not be assessed this fee. Students who are College of Business majors will not be assessed this fee (since they are already paying the Differential Tuition surcharge).
