Student fees are the primary funding source for student activities, student technology, student health services, athletic programs, student centers, transportation and campus recreation. 

Additionally, the special institutional fee is used on an institution-wide basis to supplement institutional needs not covered through tuition. As the demand to improve and expand student services has increased, student fees have become an important funding source in support of our mission to ensure “access to academic excellence and educational opportunities” for our students.

Student fee revenues are generated from the following sources:

  • Mandatory Student Fees – As defined in Section 7.3.2.1 of the Board of Regents (BOR) Policy Manual, these fees are paid by all students unless waiver provisions apply.
  • Elective Fees and Special Charges- As defined in Section 7.3.2.2 of the BOR Policy Manual, these fees are generally authorized and approved by institution presidents, with the exceptions noted in the Policy Manual regarding fees or special charges that apply to the entire undergraduate student body or for a specific degree program, which must be approved by the BOR.

The information on mandatory student fees is provided to help students understand how their fees are used and the process developed to recommend the fee to the university president and the BOR. These guidelines are not intended to be all inclusive, but to provide a general framework on how student fees should be used to support operations, services, programs and activities.

"Mandatory fees must be paid by all students unless waivers are specifically approved by the Board of Regents. There are two categories of mandatory fees: fees mandated by the Board of Regents for all University System students; and fees mandated by the institution and approved by the Board of Regents for all students at the individual institution, such as activity fees, athletic fees, health fees, and transportation fees." (BOR Policy Manual Section 704.02)
