SVF—Student Voted Fees
The Undergraduate Student Government is in charge of initiating and managing fees for services that can be enjoyed by the entire student body.
Student Activity Fee: This fee pays for activities of the Undergraduate Student Government and the Graduate Student Council. The funds are distributed among student organizations, the USG, and the GSC.
Experience Tech Fee: This fee improves student access to facilities and sporting events. It replaces revenue from individual student ticket sales and fees to support operational costs at the Mont Ripley Ski Hill, Portage Lake Golf Course, Gates Tennis Center, intramural sports, Visual and Performing Arts department events, hockey games, etc.

Residence Hall Accommodations
These fees are based on the room, occupancy, and meal plan that you select. See Housing Rates.
Fines and Penalties
Sometimes, over the course of the year, a student may incur some extra charges on his or her bill. These fees usually arise when a student registers late; when a student has outstanding parking tickets, room damages, or past-due library books; or due to other similar acts of dereliction.
Any credit to an account—whether it is through a check, grad support, wire transfer, credit card, or a dispersion of financial aid—shows up in the credit column on the student bill.
Aid appearing on your bill is based on the number of credits on your current schedule. If your financial aid award letter contains aid not listed on this bill, you may need additional course credits to receive the full award package. If additional credits are added, get a revised billing statement online. If you are carrying a full course schedule and aid is not on your bill, contact the Financial Aid Office.
Memos on your billing statement reflect incomplete financial aid or payments from sources outside the University (e.g., tuition voucher or Vocational Rehabilitation). Until payment is received, memo amounts are not included in refund calculations.
Refunds of Overpayments and Financial Aid
Refunds based on Federal Direct Loans are initiated the day after disbursement. All other credit-balance refunds are produced during the third week of classes.
