Student health fee may be renamed

The Board of Trustees student affairs committee is recommending a name change for the student health fee to cover broader health initiatives that include wellness programs.

Medical school students pay $170 per year; all other full-time Pitt students pay $85 each term for student health services.

On June 5, the committee endorsed changing the name to the wellness fee and expanding its scope to cover wellness programs through the University counseling center and the intramurals and recreation program. No change in the amount of the fee was proposed.

The student affairs committee also recommended that the board raise student activities fees at Pitt-Bradford from the current $85 per term for full-time students and $15 per term for part-time students to $100 per term for full-time students and $20 for part time students, effective in the fall. The fee was last increased in 2006.

The recommendations will be presented to the Board of Trustees, which is scheduled to meet June 28.
