  • The Student Activity Fee is mandated by the student referendum and supports programs of cultural and educational enrichment, recreational and social activities and student publications.
  • This is the first Student Activity fee increase in 11 years.
  • The fee increase was voted on at the Alumni Student Federation Board of Governors meeting in late October. The motion was made and seconded by the students on the board. The vote was unanimous.
  • The fee increase was approved by SUNY in July 2017. A Spring 2018 launch was approved because of how closely the approval followed a tuition increase announced days earlier.
