Wichita State University is in the process of changing its student fee structure to be more equitable.

Student fees pay for athletics and student services, and are currently calculated per credit hour. WSU wants to begin a flat-fee system where students pay fees based on the number of credit hours they take.

There would be three levels of student fees; all students in each level would pay the same amount.

WSU says the change will only impact student fees. Course fees, certain program fees and infrastructure fees will remain a per credit hour fee.
