What is a mandatory fee and what fees are covered?
Reconnect covers mandatory fees that are specified in your college’s course catalog as a condition of enrollment. Unless the fee is charged to all students, it is not considered mandatory. That includes course-specific fees, lab fees, ‘one-time’ fees, etc.
GOOD NEWS: Starting in the 2023-2024 Academic Year, a mandatory fee will be considered as fees that specified in your college’s course catalog as a condition of enrollment and/or are required for you to complete your program of study – that could be online fees and/or lab fees that are required for course enrollment.
Reach out to your college directly if you have questions about what mandatory fees will be covered by Reconnect and if you have any non-mandatory fees that may need to be paid out of pocket or by other sources of funding.
