Decision on athletic fee increase postponed after SGA receives formal complaint

The decision on a student vote regarding a referendum aiming to increase student athletic fees has been postponed until the first week of the spring semester, which begins Jan. 16.

The news was announced in a tweet by the Student Government Association Thursday afternoon, just two hours before a decision was set to be announced at 5 p.m.

The complaint appears to stem from a UNT policy regarding pre-finals days. UNT Policy 06.031 reads, “During prefinals days, no new curricular content will be disseminated, student organizations do not meet, and no extracurricular activities will be required.”

“I was made aware earlier today of a complaint received regarding the fee referendum,” UNT athletic director Wren Baker told the North Texas Daily. “We will respect the SGA process [and] the student voice. We have confidence it will be handled appropriately and fairly.”
