Student services fee

2024-25 Student Services Fee

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 Learning Abroad Center/Office of International Programs 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 Program recipients and students enrolled in the Senior Citizen Education Program (SCEP) are exempt from the student services fee. Students enrolled in these programs cannot elect to pay the student services fee to use the services it covers, including the Student Health Benefit Plan (SHBP). Please contact the Office of Student Health Benefits if you have questions about the Student Health Benefit Plan.

The fee is distributed among the following programs:

Administrative Units$70.00
Health Services/Wellness$157.00
Rochester Student Association$25.00

Health insurance fee

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.

Please note that if you are enrolled into the Regents Scholarship Program or the Senior Citizen Education Program (SCEP), you are not eligible for the student health benefit plan. Contact the Office of Student Health Benefits with questions about eligibility for the Student Health Benefit Plan.
