Where do my student fees go?

In addition to tuition and course fees, student fees are an additional charge that is required at the beginning of each semester. Student fees provide benefits to the student body that are deemed to improve and compliment the college experience.

In accordance with UVU Policy 511 & Utah State Board of Regents’ Policy R510, each year student fees are reviewed and allocated according the needs of the student body. To ensure a high level of accountability each student fee steward or requestor is responsible for preparing a report and presenting to the UVUSA Student Council.

Following the fee hearings held in late January/early February, a proposal will be created by the General Student Fee Board and presented to Student Council. A recommendation from Student Council will then be presented to President’s Council, the Board of Trustees and then to the Board of Regents to request approval for the upcoming fiscal year. Stewards and requestors will be given updates throughout the process and at the conclusion a final statement of understanding and agreement will be issued.

Student fees are not used to supplement budget cuts, loss of grants, loss of donation; loss of Education and General Funds (E&G) received from the legislature; capital improvements for E&G buildings; one-time fund requests; one-time capital expenses (ie: computers, phones, furniture), etc. Violation in the use of student fees may result in termination, reduction, or reallocation of the fees and the current balance. Additional information regarding use of funds may be requested periodically throughout the academic year.
