Some Seniors must pay a lot more money, but senior fees are actually only $60.

Some students have to pay a lot more then others because of any other late fees they might have throughout their 4 years of high school. According to assistant principal Dr. Parrie, the district office of 201 decides on all of the fees. Senior fees help to pay the UIC Pavilion with AC, instead of being out in the heat including a nice venue with parking.

Not paying off the fees before the end of the year comes with consequences.

“If you don’t pay the fees, there is no senior breakfast, no prom, no senior picnic, and no cap and gown. You cannot walk on stage, but will get a diploma,” Dr. Parrie said.

Even though every senior knows about the fees, they still put it off and wait till last minute.

“I owe $600 or more of just fees and I haven’t gone to pay knowing that there is only 6 more weeks left of school,” an anonymous senior girl said.

Senior’s don’t keep up with their fees and don’t get to join the senior events.

“Senior fees were due on October 31, 2017 and there is still a whole bunch of kids that need to pay,” Cashier Yasmine Hernandez said.
