Each year, the Student Technology Fee funds millions of dollars of instructional technology at Florida State University.
The Student Technology Fee—assessed from tuition each semester—is strategically distributed among university colleges, central IT organizations and instructional technology proposals. These proposals give departments an opportunity to secure funding for innovative and critical technology projects that may not be possible otherwise. To date, the STF has distributed $59.5 million, including $41.0 million to university colleges and central IT organizations and $18.5 million to fully or partially fund 613 instructional technology proposals.
