Media Fee

The Student Media Fee supports all student produced media. Started by a student led initiative in the spring of 2011, the Student Senate of the Associated Students of Lewis & Clark established the student media fee of $35 per semester. Student leaders feel strongly that as a community they can support the Student Media Board’s guarantee of a free and responsible student media by providing an opt-out student media fee.

Green Power Fee

The Green Power Fee is a voluntary fee incurred on the student account each fall. Students can choose to ‘opt out’ of the $20 annual charge no later than the second week of the fall term.
