Policy Change Costs Students Student who haven't paid fall registration fees by the time classwork begins can expect a $20 late fee to be tacked onto their tuition bill. This fee is just one of several changes in registration policies that were recently adopted by the President's Council. Other changes would institute a $5 charge for class change forms, limit the times during which changes may be made, and place a deadline on admission applications. The changes in policy were adopted, says Robert B. Smith, Vice President for Academic Affairs, to improve the flow of enrollment information and to provide a measure of enrollment limitation. They also should provide students with incentive to enroll early and use more care in the choice of classes. "Some students have been in the practice of taking 20 credit hours of course cards and then narrowing down their final selections during the first week of classes," said Smith. "This sometimes leads to other students being turned away from the class, as it appears to be filled. When the class is dropped by the student with the card, the end result is a less-than-full class." The necessity of full classes becomes more important in the face of budget cuts which have forced the college to cut roughly 7 per cent of class offerings. These classes will be in the area of electives, off-campus offerings and faculty overload classes. Currently, late fees are assessed in this manner: $10 for full-time students and $5 for part-time students beginning one week after classwork starts; $20 for full-time and $10 for part-time beginning two weeks after classwork begins. There is no charge for changes in the current policy. According to Smith, waivers will be available if their school subsidies are not available at the time of registration. Students should apply to the financial aids office for consideration for a waiver. Students will be officially notified of the changes with a flyer placed in their spring grade reports.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
