In 2004 the fee board recommended a decrease in student fees. That year only two fee increases were approved. One fee that was approved was a $0.25 fee increase for The Utah Statesman. The proposed student fees total was $261.75 for Fall 2004 compared to the $ 535.07 fee that full-time students paid Fall 2017. The fee board for this year just decided to increase the student fees for Fall 2018. It is interesting to see how things change over the course of 14 years.
