Student Fees

Your student fees pay for essential virtual and in-person services, events, retention efforts, academic help, mentoring and more. This allows the university to provide a comprehensive educational experience with numerous support options regardless of how you're engaged! Student fees are reviewed annually for approval by important folks such as the president and the Board of Trustees, but most importantly, students participate in deciding how student fees are spent. If you are interested in being part of the student fees process, apply to be on the Student Fee Recommendation Committee.
