JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)- The Arkansas State University Board of Trustees have voted to increase athletic fees.
The increase will take the fees from $12 to $15 per credit hour. That means for students carrying a 15-hour load, an additional $45 dollars in athletic fees.
The money will help cover the rising costs of scholarships, staffing travel and other expenses and requirements associated with being an NCAA I-A Athletic program. The increase is expected to garner an extra $780, 000.
