LSA committee questions drop/add fee
By KENT REDDING
The University's new $10 late
drop/add fee was debated at yester-
day's LSA Curriculum Committee
meeting, as LSA officials criticized the
The new policy, which would charge
students $10 for each course they drop
or add after the announced deadline
was not thoroughly considered, said
Robert Wallin, director of LSA Check-
ERNEST Zimmerman, assistant to
* the Vice President for Academic Af-
fairs, told the committee that late
drop/adds were costing the University
The problem is nearly 6,000 students
drop or add courses after the deadline,
forcing the University to keep ad-
ditional workers at CRISP, said Zim-
Zimmerman said the fee, to be im-
plemented next fall, would be a
deterrent in addition to the 'W' students
now receive on their transcriptsfor late
drop/adds. The fee would also help pay
for the costs of extra CRISP staff
needed after the deadline, he said.
MEMBERS OF the committee
disputed Zimmerman and suggested
the new policy not only wouldn't deter
students, but it may actually increase
costs to the University.
"I doubt that a fee is going to be a
very persuasive deterrent," said
Charles Judge, director of Academic
Services, who addressed the commit-
tee. The 'W' on the transcript is a good
deterrent, said Judge, adding, "They
(students) certainly complain about
Members also charged that the fee
will add to administrative costs as
departments and counselors try to
decide who would be exempt from the
"THE MORE (time) we spend on this
kind of thing, the less time we have for
important matters such as students'
concerns," said one member.
Zimmerman said he wasn't sure who
would qualify for fee exemptions. The
only exemptions now being considered
are late drop/adds that are the fault of
the, University, he said.
As the policy stands now, students
will have to pay the fee regardless of
any individual reason for missing the
.Answering committee inquiries,
Zimmerman said, "This is not a money-
raising scheme. The money will go to
the general revenue fund."
ZIMMERMAN also said there is
evidence indicating that many students
drop/add late for no legitimate reason.
The committee chairman promised
to pursue the matter. "There's an awful,
lot of waffling," said Chairman Jens
Zorn, associate dean for curriculum
affairs. "We have to pin that down."
Wallin called the fee a "Reaganomic
revenue enhancer" that would only
cause problems for LSA. "I don't see
how any problem is going to be solved
by this," he said.
The committee plans to draft a letter
to the committee who originally
proposed the fee, stating their reser-
vatiors. and questions about it.
