Small Victories For Common Sense

Apparently, someone at Stony Brook got around to realizing the dumb move they made, because this came to my inbox today:

A message to all Stony Brook University students:

Please disregard any new charges on the fall bill reflecting an Academic Excellence and Success fee of $37.50 and out-of-state tuition associated with the implementation of Stony Brook University’s NY SUNY 2020 plan.

The next bill you receive for the spring 2012 semester will reflect the new charges. We regret any inconvenience this has caused, and if a payment has already been made, the University will implement a credit balance to the Spring semester bill.

Please call the Student Accounts Office at (631) 632-2455 with any questions about your account and we will be happy to assist you; or visit

Still, I’m not quite sure what it means.  Did they decide not to charge $37.50 on the fall bill, and are just moving the fall charge over to the spring bill?  We shall see.
