A fee will be assessed to attempt to recover data and/or transfer data that was successfully recovered onto a media device provided by the student, i.e. Flash Drive, Hard Drive, or DVD. No fee will be assessed unless some or all of the data is recovered.

PC Remediation Service Fee

A fee will be assessed for removal of all Spyware and Viruses from the PC and for installing the most current updates to applications and the operating system to help reduce the risk of future attacks.

Transportation Fee

This fee is charged to all students each term registered for 6 or more credit hours in courses designated as on-campus. This fee will allow students to receive a parking permit (at no additional charge). Students must request the permit via MyYSU portal; the permit will give them unlimited access to shuttle service and admission into designated parking areas. The transportation fee supports the operating and maintenance costs of campus parking facilities, roadways and sidewalks, as well as student shuttle service. The fee does not guarantee an available space in any particular lot. Some facilities are restricted (e.g. for students only, for faculty and staff only, or resident hall residents only). The current Driving and Parking Regulations pamphlet and parking lot map should be consulted. The transportation fee is refundable only if the student has less than 6 credit hours (in courses designated as on-campus courses) by the last day of the 100% tuition refund period AND they return the permit access card and validation sticker within five days of either the withdrawal date or the last date of the 100% tuition refund period-whichever is earlier. The transportation fee is non-refundable after the 100% tuition refund period and cannot be appealed.

Optional Parking Fee

This fee is optional each term for students registered for less than 6 credit hours in courses designated as on-campus. This fee is charged, upon request of the parking permit via MyYSU portal – and will appear on students’ accounts as a ‘parking fee’. The ‘optional’ fee and parking permit, will also allow the student to have unlimited access to shuttle service. Students requesting the parking permit after the 14th day of the term will not have the permit issued or shuttle services made available until payment of the fee. The fee supports the operating and maintenance costs of campus parking facilities, roadways and sidewalks, as well as student shuttle service. The fee does not guarantee an available space in any particular lot. Some facilities are restricted (e.g. for students only, for faculty and staff only, or resident hall residents only).

A daily fee is charged anyone without a permit who wishes to park in facilities designated for cash business. Persons other than employees and students who are on campus for a short period of time to conduct business may park in one of the visitors’ lots if space is available.
