LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The University of Wyoming is accepting public comment until March 20 on a proposal to institute cost-based student fees for academic programs.

The proposal offers direct help to UW students through enhanced advising, career preparation, assurance of course availability and other student services.

Crafted by a subcommittee appointed by President Laurie Nichols, the proposal was discussed with UW students during a series of town hall sessions on campus last fall.

Following the public comment period and potential revision, a program fees proposal is scheduled to be presented to the UW Board of Trustees at its March 22-24 meeting.

Under the proposal, student fees would be assessed above the standard tuition rate.
