Services & Activities (S&A) Fees

S&A fees are one component of the total tuition and fees that WSU Global Campus students pay. The fee revenue is used to fund nonacademic student activities, programs, and projects. The purpose of these services and activities is to enhance the student experience by funding student government, student organizations, entertainment, speakers, facilities, and recreation.

S&A Fees FAQs

The funds are distributed based on proposals submitted to the WSU Global Campus S&A Fee Committee (“Committee”). The Committee is comprised of primarily students, along with administrators and staff, who are responsible for deliberating the proposals and budget requests. After deliberation, the Committee recommends to the University President and the Board of Regents how the estimated S&A fee revenue shall be allocated for the following year.

Criteria for awarding funds are:

  • Providing a student environment, which contributes to cultural and social growth for WSU Global Campus degree-seeking students.
  • Providing services/activities and facilities that are otherwise unavailable.
  • Ensuring a reasonable balance between events for WSU Global Campus students aimed at attracting the highest student attendance and events aimed at specific community and/or cultural events.
  • Ensuring the funding awarded to a group is made available, directed and marketed towards WSU Global Campus students.
