More Fees for College Students This Fall
The University of Michigan is charging an extra fee this year for students - for Coronavirus testing. The fee, $50 per term will cover some of the costs associated with testing all students for the virus prior to moving in. Other colleges, like Merrimack College in Massachusetts, are charging a mitigation fee of $475 per semester for - in-person classes. This is to help offset the cost of testing each student for Covid. A statement on their website says the following: "Should Merrimack receive funding for testing, it will share a portion of these funds with students by crediting student accounts."
