Below is the list of general student fees, along withmore context for how student tuition and fees are used in a remote teaching and learning context and how the value of a Lehman College education is maintained.

- Student Activity Fees are being used to fund workshops, hire tutoring staff, support Student Government Association virtual activities including hundreds of now virtual events, programs and activities; provide tele-counseling and services for students with disabilities and more. Without student fees, Lehman College would have to offer fewer class options, less digital support and reduced virtual student services.
- Technological Support: As you may know, the Bronx is one of areas in New York City where the digital divide is most acute. We need more computer hardware and software licenses to support students with loaner devices, money to help ship or otherwise distribute such devices safely; a growing number of software systems for online teaching and delivery; and support for our expanded virtual food bank, career services, and mental health support for students in need. The student Tech Fee ($125 per semester for full-time students, $62.50 for part-time students) also pays for student tech support such as the online chatbot, online library resources and journals, the Health Center online student portal and many other services. Together, these added costs exceed any savings from having classes off campus, even with CARES Act funding.
- Personnel Costs & Course Delivery: Part of what student tuition and fees pay for in 2020 include the costs of online delivery of more than 3,000 course sections, including the professional development and training opportunities for staff and faculty, and the technological upgrades and maintenance required to do so.
