University Program and Facilities Fees FAQ
UPFF is part of the cost of attending the university and is essential to the support of vital functions within the university community, including the health center. All enrolled students — even those pursuing an off-campus course such as student teaching — are assessed student fees along with tuition, whether or not they plan to take advantage of fee-funded facilities and services. For more information on UPFF, visit the Student Affairs website.
It depends. Fees for students taking seven or more credit hours cover many health center services, but fees for students taking six or fewer credit hours do not. These students may elect to pay the fee per term or they may procure services at the health center on a fee-for-service basis.
Note: The University Program and Facilities Fees are completely separate from the UnitedHealthcare StudentResources Student Health Insurance Plan premium.
