Last semester, we had Grad School Director mentioning about waving the general fees, technology fee, transportation fees, etc (about $1400 every semester). But, seems like that has not happened yet? Do we have any update regarding that?
Nash Sisk

We don't have dental insurance through the school's plan?
Graduate Student Council
27:27
Manideep, the Graduate School is still talking about this, but they haven't made any progress. We mentioned this again to the Provost's office and the Dean of the Graduate School, and we plan on continuing to bring this up throughout the semester in hopes that we'll see some progress!

Nash, we don't have dental insurance, but you can cover dental cleaning with 'flex dollars' if you have the CSU SHIP insurance.
