INDIANA, Pa. -- Most Indiana University of Pennsylvania students may see an increase in the wellness fee for the next academic year.


Malinda M. Cowles, Center for Health and Well-Being director, reported the increase for full-time students at the Student Government Association meeting Thursday at the HUB Susquehanna Room.  The fee would rise to $162 from $160, a 1.25 percent increase.  Part-time and graduate students would see no increase.


Cowles said expiration of a federal grant was the reason for the fee hike.

Indiana University of Pennsylvania President David J. Werner expressed concern on Wednesday morning about the campus' future only hours after Gov. Tom Corbett on Tuesday proposed a 20 percent cut in spending for state-owned universities.


Speaking alone from the front rows of a half-full Gorrell auditorium in Sutton Hall, Werner told his audience of faculty members and staff that the cut would mean $10.3 million less state money for IUP. However, with increases in benefit and retirement pay, utility prices and other costs, Werner said the total loss in next year's budget will be closer to $13 million.
