Student Society Fees
The majority of student society fees are compulsory fees collected on behalf of student organizations. Fees must be approved by the student body through fee referenda according to the constitutional rules of the association or society. Some fees are optional and students may opt-out during a defined opt-out period in September/January. To opt-out students should access the Student Accounts Menu in Minerva. Please note that this does not apply to the student society health and dental insurance plans. For more information, see Student Insurance.
Changes to student society fees are voted upon by the students during the Spring and Fall referendum periods. Some fees are pro-rated for part-time students.
Annual fees at the undergraduate level range from $418 – $1,376..
Fees at the graduate level range from $209- $1,078, depending on the student's classification and program.

A portion of the amount continues to be directed to Athletics (except in the School of Continuing Studies).
All students in courses and programs will be assessed a Registration Charge. The charge will range from $9.26 per credit to $138.90 per term (charged on a flat rate basis to full-time students).
