Why am I being charged an Information Technology Fee?

Information Technology Fee:

An Information Technology Fee is charged to all undergraduate and graduate students at all campus locations. The IT fee supports digital services such as internet access, e-mail, security, help services, software, computer labs, library resources, and wireless networks. Even if the student is not physically studying on campus, their e-mail account is still active and they have full access to the internet and other services. This is a mandatory fee.
