Student Technology Fee
Initially, the Student Technology Fee (STF) will provide technological enhancements to school members and guests. The STF will be assessed $2.50 per unit for the 15 units of ED or CNCSP courses taken each quarter and will be charged automatically to students’ BA/RC accounts. The fee is officially assessed during the 3rd week of each quarter; thus, students who drop a course after the third week census will still incur the per-unit charge. Please refer to the ITGWik FAQ page for more details. (https://apps.education.ucsb.edu/wiki/Student_Technology_Fee_FAQ)
