COVID-19 Related Fee Changes

As Evergreen has shifted to remote and hybrid instruction, we have invested in tools, training, and technology to support students and faculty. Evergreen faculty members have been preparing and adjusting modes of instruction so we can ensure credits earned in a hybrid or remote environment have the same value. At the same time, Evergreen staff have made existing and new services available online so that we can serve students remotely, sustain critical functions, and support the Evergreen community. Many of those services are supported by fees.
