Students shall be required to pay mandatory student fees for student publications, student government, technology, and campus communication/student broadcast fees at all campuses at which they are enrolled, regardless of whether the course is taught online or at a distance. These fees support services that are accessible or provide direct benefits regardless of the student’s geographical location. Students enrolled in classes on a campus will additionally be assessed the following campus-based mandatory student fees: student activity and program fees, campus center and student recreation fees, student health fees, student transportation/UPASS fees, and student athletic fees.

Students in distance and online courses may be physically unable to take direct advantage of certain campus-based co-curricular programs and opportunities. Therefore, they shall be exempt from paying certain mandatory student fees of their course-offering campus.
