Academic Excellence Fee

The Board of Supervisors of Community and Technical Colleges, by R.S. 17:1871 (B) and 3351 (A) (5) and in accordance with Article VII, Section 2.1 (A) of the Constitution of Louisiana, has provided for the assessment of an academic excellence fee at each institution under its management and supervision effective for the Fall 2003 session and thereafter. The board established this fee in addition to other tuition and attendance fees. The purpose of this fee is to promote academic excellence by enhancing instructional programs; however, no proceeds shall be used to pay the salary of any university or university system administrator.

Access Fee

Each student will be assessed $50 per semester for this fee. Revenues generated are used to improve and maintain the College’s overall transportation infrastructure for all modes of transportation to and from, as well as on all campuses and sites. This includes but is not limited to: College-sponsored on- and off-campus parking or transportation arrangements; construction, maintenance, and operation of parking lots and facilities; all on-campus modes of transportation such as sidewalks, bikes, and vehicles; lighting, parking lot, and walkway enhancements; security improvements and initiatives; and other related operational expenses. Payment of the fee entitles each student to one active vehicle registration on campus at no additional cost.

Building Use Fee

House Bill No. 671 of the 2013 regular legislative session allows management boards to establish a college building use fee not to exceed $48 per semester (or $4 per credit hour) to construct, repair, maintain, operate, or improve the facilities and physical infrastructure of colleges.

The fee is charged at $5 for each semester.

Student Activities Fee

This fee is a student self-assessed fee initiated by the Student Government Association. Effective Fall 2015, the student body approved a fee to be assessed to all students. This fee provides means for major student activities and events, such as co-curricular programs, cultural events, student professional development, intramural sports, support to the student clubs and or organizations, student discount program, local community service initiatives, and traditional student-led campus events. This fee is charged to all South Louisiana Community College students and is managed by the South Louisiana Community College Student Engagement Office. The fee is currently charged at $4 per credit hour.

Student Services Fee

The proceeds from this fee cover costs for student services such as applying, registering for campus-based courses, receiving identification cards, retention services, and graduation ceremonies. The fee is currently charged at $7 per credit hour.

Technology Fee

The Louisiana legislature approved this self-assessed student fee in 1997. The proceeds are for "implementing, replacing, improving, and expanding technologies to benefit student life and learning." For the purpose of this fee, "technologies" includes, but is not limited to, instructional and laboratory equipment, and the networking and supporting computers and telecommunications infrastructure necessary to support these activities. SLCC students, through a referendum presented by the SGA during the Spring 2000 semester, approved this fee. The LCTCS board also approved this fee in March 2001. This fee became effective during the 2001-2002 academic year. The fee is charged at $5 per credit hour, not to exceed $60.

As an added convenience, especially for students who are out of the area or state, transcripts may be requested using National Student Clearinghouse for a cost. The fee is payable by debit or credit card.
