Student Technology Fee

The purposes of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education technology fee are: to acquire, install, and maintain up-to-date and emerging technologies for the purpose of enhancing student-learning outcomes; to provide equitable access to technology resources; and to ensure, ultimately, that State System graduates are competitive in the technologically sophisticated workplace. Proposals for new projects can be submitted annually each spring semester. These proposals are reviewed and evaluated. Funded projects are then implemented during the following fall/spring semesters. The proposal process has been automated by using the campus SharePoint system. For more details and the process contact Teresa Hudson, Coordinator of Technology Fee projects



Students, faculty, and staff should report all student technology issues to or call the IT Help Desk at (610) 436-3350.
