NASHVILLE — A Tennessee Board of Regents committee set three meetings to discuss student fees for the next academic year.

The board that governs Tennessee’s 13 community colleges and 27 colleges of applied technology said Monday that the Committee on Finance and Business Operations will discuss possible changes to student fees at a meeting on Friday.

Two other meetings to discuss incidental and mandatory fees other than tuition for the 2020-2021 academic year are scheduled for Feb. 20 and March 10.

Friday’s agenda includes an overview of requests from community and applied technology colleges for possible changes in fees. Incidental fees are charges for specific classes, labs, licensure exams, materials and services to individual students.

Mandatory fees include technology and student activity fees. They are billed to all full-time students enrolled at a college, the board said.

The committee will likely act at the March 10 meeting on potential recommendations to the full Board of Regents, which must approve fees charged to students, the board said.
