Fees

Read the descriptions carefully to determine which fees may apply to you.


The UMM Campus Fee is charged to all students to help fund technological enhancements on campus that are of direct benefit to students and their educational programs. Those registered for fewer than 6 credits pay a reduced rate. A Summer Campus Fee is charged to students taking classes during summer session.

Students registered for 6 or more credits pay a Student Service Fee each semester to support student services and activities. The Student Service Fees for 2016-17 are listed below. 

Supported Organization Fee Per Semester
RFC fee $92.50
Health and Wellness Services $90.00
Activities $118.50
Student Center $39.00
Intercollegiate Athletics $45.00
Total Student Service Fee Per Student $385.00

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.
