Student Life Fee

The 2016-2017 Student Life Fee

All registered students are assessed a quarterly Student Life Fee which allows you access to the Student Health Service and Student Counseling Service. This fee also covers activities through the Center for Leadership and Involvement as well as campus-wide services and resources provided centrally through Campus & Student Life.

The 2016-17 Student Life Fee for graduate students is $376 per quarter for fall, winter and spring. For college students, the fee is $403 per quarter for fall, winter and spring. You are assessed this fee for each quarter you are registered on campus. If you were registered at the University the preceding spring quarter you may also elect to pay this fee during the summer quarter when you are not registered in order to access the Student Health Service and Student Counseling Service.

The Student Life Fee will be waived only for those of you who live and study over 100 miles from campus, and who will not be on campus during the quarter. These waivers are administered by area Deans of Students.

  • students in the Graduate School of Business Evening, Weekend, Executive Programs
  • students in the SSA Evening Program
