LINCOLN, Neb. — Student fees are expected to increase next year at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) to pay for an extended bus contract with local transit agency StarTran, according to the Daily Nebraskan.
The expected increase results from the university’s decision to extend its three-year contract with StarTran to a five-year contract. The Association of Students of the University of Nebraska senators will recommend fee changes to the Committee for Fees Allocation next spring. For the full story, click here.
