May 22, 2017 – Fort Myers, FLA – Each year, Florida SouthWestern State College conducts an assessment of the courses offered and the associated fees. For the 2017-2018 academic year, the proposal for fees must be brought to the college’s Board of Trustees for review and vote. The FSW Board of Trustees meeting is scheduled at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, June 27 at the FSW Hendry/Glades Curtis Center in LaBelle.
“Last year, we either reduced or eliminated course fees for 61 courses last year. That resulted in a savings for students of about $610,000,” said Dr. Jeff Stewart, Provost. “Each year, we review all of our courses to help ensure that the fees associated with each of them covers the cost of supplies. Where we can, we reduce those costs.”
