UM Fees

The Health & Counseling Centers Fee, a mandatory fee for all students (undergraduate, graduate, and law) regardless of credit load, allows for primary medical care physician/ nursing services, 24 hour on-call services, health counseling and community outreach/public health initiatives at the Student Health Service, and individual and group counseling, substance abuse and other addiction programs, crisis intervention, case management, and mental health education and other outreach programs at the Counseling Center.

The Activity Fee The Activity Fee entitles students to receive an identification card, which is their required identification card for various campus uses such as student elections, use of certain University facilities, free admission to many University-sponsored events, and the Ibis yearbook. The Student Activity Fee Allocation Committee (SAFAC), an all-student committee, recommends allocation from this fee to the University's administration. The funds generated by this fee are used to support the availability of a wide range of programs, services, facilities and organizations including the University Center, student activities, campus sports, major events, e.g.,Homecoming and Carni Gras, various forms of entertainment, major concerts, student publications, student radio station, and student government.

The Athletic Fee entitles students to attend assigned home games for football, baseball, basketball and intercollegiate contests. Free transportation is included for events held at the Hard Rock Stadium.

The Student Center Fee provides funding for the Student Activities Center built on the site of the old Rathskeller and also renovations and upgrades to the existing Whitten University Center. Undergraduate, Graduate, and Law Students proposed and approved a referendum on this fee in 2006 to support new meeting rooms, student organization office spaces, retail options, and a new Rathskeller. A student-chaired Student Center Advisory Board is charged with considering hours, policies, and direction for the complex to ensure that student organizations and individual students have priority use of the facility for their meetings and programming. The 119,000-square-foot Student Activities Center and the renovated University Center are joined by a new patio and performance stage to create a student center complex capable of meeting the needs of all UM students.
