Academic year 2017–18

Students enrolled in 6 or more credits for fall and spring semester or 3 credits for summer term must pay a student services fee in addition to tuition. This fee is distributed among various student programs, as listed below. Courses that carry no degree credit, and all courses in which you enroll as an auditor, count in the determination of the credit total for the student services fee on a one class hour = one credit basis.

In addition, credits for off-campus, Learning Abroad Center/Office of International Programs, Online and Distance Learning courses, and web-based/TV courses are excluded from the total credit count.

Exemption criteria

Not all University of Minnesota students are required to pay the student services fee. Non-degree-seeking students and post-secondary option students do not need to pay the student services fee. Some students in a certificate academic plan or in specialized/evening/part-time academic plans may also be exempt (check with your program office for more information).

Students meeting the above exemption criteria may elect to pay the fee if they wish to use or support the services covered by the fee. Regents Scholarship recipients, as well as students enrolled in the Senior Citizen Education Program are also exempt from this fee and may not elect to pay the fee.

The Student Services fee is composed of three categories: the Student Activity fee; the Media fee; and the Student Life, Health, and Wellbeing fee. The allocation for these categories is listed below. For a full description of the Student Services fee, go to the Office for Student Affairs website.

If you are 1) admitted to a degree program, and 2) registered for 6 or more credits per semester (or 3 or more credits during summer term) that count toward the automatic assessment of the Student Services Fee, you are required by the University of Minnesota to have health plan coverage. If you meet both of these criteria you will be automatically enrolled in the University-sponsored Student Health Benefit Plan.

By requiring students to have health plan coverage, the University ensures all students have access to medical care and can maintain good health, which is essential for academic success. You may choose to waive the University-sponsored Student Health Benefit Plan by providing proof of enrollment in an alternative eligible health plan.
