How the MES is handling fall 2020 tuition
We've received a number of messages from students concerned that tuition will be charged in full for the upcoming Fall semester, despite the drastic changes being made in an effort to convert our courses to remote formats. We want you to know that we've heard your concerns, and we've worked with the Faculty, the University, the MSU, and other Faculty Societies to ensure that our students are treated fairly given this unprecedented situation. Read our statement to find out how the MES is advocating for your rights as students.
