The Western Illinois University Board of Trustees approved at its meeting today, held via teleconference, to grant presidential authority to make decisions regarding refunding or crediting mandatory and special Spring 2020 student fees and the FY21 student health insurance fee. The meeting was live-streamed on WIU’s YouTube Channel at youtube.com/user/WesternIllinoisU.
Due to circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board authorizes Interim President Martin Abraham to make decisions and take the necessary actions, with regard to refunding or crediting students mandatory fees and special fees for the Spring 2020 semester. The Board granted this authority to the Interim President until the sooner of the state of emergency being lifted or until the next Board of Trustees meeting.
The Board also approved a resolution to keep the Fiscal Year 2021 student health insurance rates level with FY20 at $795 per half year or $1,590 per full year, effective Aug. 1.
