The University of Toledo is working to help students take the summer classes they need to stay on track to earn their degree by reducing fees and extending payment deadlines.
Recognizing that all students will be learning remotely, the distance learning fee, facility fee and all lab and technology fees will be waived for the summer. The general fee also will be cut by approximately 35% for the summer term recognizing that students cannot access services such as the Rec Center and the Student Union. Other important student services, such as tutoring, counseling and career services, and library support services remain available online. These fee adjustments will be made to students’ accounts in the next week.
“While these choices will further impact our budget deficit exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is the right thing to do for our students,” said Dr. Karen Bjorkman, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs.
The University will be offering a one-week extended grace period for summer tuition payments for students who need it.
UToledo had previously announced in advance on April 6 that all summer courses would be taught remotely as part of the response to the coronavirus pandemic. All summer courses have been designed to be delivered 100% online to maintain the quality of instruction and offer students options to get ahead in their studies.
