It is the policy of the Board of Regents that Student Fees exist only in cases of additional administrative or other service costs incurred by the institution for a necessary student activity or requirement that are not specific to one course or type of course. Student Fees may be assessed to provide services to the students for (a) special events or activities (e.g., graduation), (b) special services provided by the institution (e.g., personal/group counseling including psychological and testing, health services, international student services), (c) third party pass-through charges (e.g., test administration or contracted health services), (d) special general instructional requirements (e.g., thesis fee). Funds generated from Student Fees may be spent for the intended purpose only. Mandatory fees required of all students or all students in a particular group, regardless of dollar amount, shall be reviewed and approved by the Board of Regents.

All assessed fees are subject to change by the Board of Regents. For updated information on fees, please visit
