student fees table for full-time and part-time students
Fees Fall, Spring Semesters Summer Session only
Full-time students (12 or more credits)
Consolidated Fee $ 15.00 $ 15.00 per session
Technology Fee $125.00 $ 62.50

Student Activity Fee $ 27.03 $ 16.83 per session
Student Senate Fee $ 1.45 $ 1.45 per session

Notes on Student Fees:

  1. Students who originally register for 12 or more credits, or a combination of credits plus noncredit remedial hours or credit equivalents, and subsequently reduce their load to less than 12, are still subject to the full-time student fee charge and will not be refunded any part of that fee. Students who initially register for less than 12 credits, or a combination of credits plus chargeable hours or credit equivalents, and then through subsequent additions carry 12 or more credits, or a combination of credits plus chargeable hours or credit equivalents, are subject to the full-time student fee.

  2. Summer Session Fees: Effective Summer 2014, students will be required to pay the following fees for each session that they register: Consolidated Fee, $15.00; Student Activity Fee, $16.83 and Student Senate Fee, $1.45. Therefore students who register for classes in BOTH the early session (which begins in May) AND the late session (which begins in July) will be assessed two of each of these fees (Consolidated, Student Activity Fee and Student Activity Fee) – one for the early session and one for the late session.
