K...fysASMA'MMsM imes volume 20 issue 2 19 June 1991 utah valley community college iiys'iioo, Janet Hart Herald Correspondent Students at UVCC will see a change in the tuition for the 1991-92 school year and a slight change in the student fees. The board of trustees of UVCC approved the revised tuition and fee schedule for the coming school year during their monthly meeting Thu night at the college. Douglas Warner, director of budgets, said there will be a five percent increase from last year in the tuition schedule for students with 15 credit hours. .Other credit hour levels will also see changes, but some will be greater than others because the col- fees I ncir OS lege is striving to reach a plateau tuition schedule for 12-18 credits. In the 1991-92 school year, there will be a plateau or flat tuition schedule for 13-17 credit hours of $497.00, Warner said. The flat rate for 12-18 credits will be reached in the following year officials hope. A resident student at UVCC taking 15.0 credit hours will pay $497 tuition in the 1991-92 year with an additional $122.50 in fees, such as insurance, library and activity center. A non-resident student with the same credit load will pay $1,590.95 in tuition and $122.50 in fees. The remaining tuition and fee schedules vary with the amount of credits taken by a student, which can tor fall again range from .5 to 25. Student fees will vary slightly by reducing the student insurance premium by $1 and adding the dollar to the activity fee. Kenneth Patey, ASU-VCC president forl991-92 said half of the money will go to the theater department so they can begin producing summer plays for the college and community. In another action, the board approved the final work program amendment for 1990-91, the first work program amendment for 1991-92 and the operating budget for 1991-92. A final amendment of $1.5 million was added to the 1991-92 budget basically because of summer school, Warner said. Regulations stipulate that the revenue from summer school is added to the fiscal year in which the majority of the summer school takes place. Warner said under the old term system, summer school revenues would have been replaced in the new fiscal year. However, in the new semester system the money must be added to the old year or 1990-91 because summer semester runs from the first part of May to the end of Jul and the fiscal year ends Jun 30. Warner said the 1991-92 operating budget was amended by an additional $673,900 to bring it in line with what is actually needed at the college. When See TUITION, page 8 President's home tops $400,000 in faulty bidding Dennis Romboy Deseret News Utah Valley Community College officials underestimated the cost of the president's new on-campus house by more than $89,000. UVCC budgeted $328,790 to build the5,000-square-foot structure. The house was bid at $300,000 and change orders and other fees totaled another $20,372, bringing the project in $8,418 less than budgeted. The construction bid, however, did not include costs for landscaping and other exterior work. The unbudgeted part of the project, totaling $89,297, included concrete work, construction of a patio, landscaping, grading and sewer, water-and gas-line connection fees. UVCC President Kerry Romesburg said the bid, awarded to Larry Price Construction, was to build the house only. Funds for the new residence came from the 1989 sale of a Provo house UVCC bought for former president J. Marvin Higbee. On Thursday, the UVCC Board of Trustees formally approved the use of up to $84,000 in one-time interest income to cover contracts for exterior work. Another $8,418 left over from the original construction budget helped cover additional costs. Romesburg said the additional costs will not be taken from the school's budget. Trustees informally approved the additional money in a telephone poll conducted Mayl3andl4. Theboarddid not meet in May. See HOME, page 8 t .if;'-' I; i A H, r i ' 5. - T- , - . - It .

NASA launches debris reseach in science dept. Ten minority scholarships available Brendon Cannon News Editor UVCC announced ten Minority Advisory Council tuition waiver scholarships. Possible candidates include native Americans, African Americans, AsianPacific Islanders and Hispanics. This new scholarship is available only to qualifying minorities and must be requested by Jul 1 to the office of the Dean of Academic Services.Students must also qualify as Utah residents, high school graduates with a GPA of 2.5 or above, or have completed less than 15 credit hours at UVCC with a GPA of 2.5 or above. The scholarships pay for four semesters with 13-17 credit hours each on condition that GPA is maintained. The scholarship expires within five years from the date of the original award. Thomas Epting Editor in Chief "It's not a laser gun, it's a launcher," said Thomas Lee, UVCC astronomy professor about the hy-pervelocity accelerator received from NASA. The accelerator and $40,000 comprise a two-year research grant to test the durability of NASA's future space station. "The new space station that NASA will construct sometime in the next decade will face a new kind of threat," said Lee. "That threat is erosion to the station by the debris left in space by man himself." He explained that the threat generally comes from tiny particles, as small as 128th of an inch, from the painted or anodized surfaces of man-made space debris. The accelerator will simulate the effects of these particles on space vehicle surfaces. A pressurized hydrogen mechanism snoots the tiny particles into an large outerspace-like vacuum cylinder. The accelerator currently fires these particles at seven kilometers per second. Lee's job for NASA is to increase the firing rate to 11 kilometers per second. "We have discovered that this (seven kilometers per second) is not enough velocity to replicate actual space conditions," said Lee. "A velocity of 11 kilometers per second would more realistically represent true conditions." Lee's modifications to the hydrogen firing mechanism will create the additional four kilometers per second. UVCC's role in the research is See NASA, page 8 TK- - vi " A ' " Thoma Epting The College Timet Thomas Lee explains hydrogen "firing pin" in particle launcher.
