Health and Wellness Student Fee Vote Information

The 2013-14 ACC Student Government supported the new Health and Wellness Student Fee to include expanded mental health services and open access to the existing ACC Fitness Center for all students who pay student activity fees. In early Spring 2014, a survey was sent to all ACC students via their student email regarding options related to this new Health and Wellness Fee. View the final results. Based on these survey results, a proposal was sent to the ACC President, Dr. Doyle, to ask for support of a new $9.50 fee per semester. 

A vote was administered through the ACC student email at the end of April 2014. The fee vote passed with 62% of voting students voting for the new Health and Wellness Fee.
