North Texas students will vote for a second time on an increase in the school’s athletic fee that would provide a significant financial boost for the school’s sports programs beginning Tuesday. Voting will run through Thursday. UNT’s current athletic fee is $10 per semester credit hour. The school’s athletic department also receives a portion of a student services fee. The proposal would increase UNT’s athletic fee to $16.25 per semester credit hour but would reduce the student services fee. The result would be a net increase for students of $4.25 per credit hour that would provide the athletic department an additional $3.5 million per year. Baker and other UNT officials have pointed to the fact that, even with the proposed increase, the school’s athletic fee would be 30 percent lower than the average in Conference USA and 19 percent below the fees charged by Texas State and Texas-San Antonio after the increase, according to a UNT study. -Brett Vito, Denton Record-Chronicle, Read More
