Auburn University announced on Tuesday afternoon that it will waive fees for student services during the summer 2020 semester because of financial challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.
"The student services fees are typically assessed each semester to provide for student activities that include organizations, on-campus programs, recreation, transportation, student governance and various other student-related projects," the University said.
The University stated that this suspension means students enrolled in summer courses will see savings of up to $838. It also reminded students that registration is currently open through May 20.
The summer 2020 semester will occur over three sessions: a 10-week session from May 20 to July 31; a five-week session from May 20 to June 23; and an additional five-week session from June 29 to July 31.
The first two sessions are to be delivered online through remote instruction. Class delivery for the third session is yet to be determined, but an announcement will be made by June 1, according to the University.
