Student Technology Fee

Each year, the Student Technology Fee funds millions of dollars of instructional technology at Florida State University. The Tech Fee—assessed from tuition each semester—strategically divides funds 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 Student Tech Fee has distributed $47.0 million, including $32.6 million to university colleges and central IT organizations and $14.4 million to fully or partially fund 451 instructional technology proposals.
