Mandatory Student Fee Structure Change – Effective Fall 2018


The SIU Board of Trustees (BOT) approved a change in the SIU Carbondale mandatory student fee structure for the 2018-2019 school year.


What are the new Mandatory Fee Costs for Students for Fall 2018 and beyond?

Mandatory on-campus fees have traditionally been assessed separately, most as per hour fees and a few as flat (fixed) fees.  Starting Fall 2018, nearly all of them will be consolidated into a General Student Fee of $117.00/hour that is uncapped.1  Undergraduate students will continue to be separately charged the $3.00 Student-to-Student Grant Fee, which is refundable if the student submits this form to the Registrar's Office by the deadline noted on the form.  Undergraduate and graduate students will also continue to be separately charged the Student Insurance Fee, which is refundable if the student is able to demonstrate duplicate medical insurance coverage.2

Similar on-campus fee consolidations will happen for School of Law and certain School of Medicine students as well, though their new per hour rates will be capped at 15 hours per term.

Mandatory off-campus (and online) fees have traditionally been assessed separately, most as per hour fees and one as a flat (fixed) fee.  Starting Fall 2018, most of them will be consolidated into a General Student Fee of $72.60/hour that is uncapped.3  Undergraduate students will continue to be separately charged the $3.00 Student-to-Student Grant Fee, which, as noted above, is refundable.

Information about other fees that do not necessarily apply to all students, or that apply only at certain points of the student's time at SIUC, is available here.  Such other fees are not impacted by the consolidation of mandatory student fees noted above.




1 This General Student Fee will continue to allow on-campus students unlimited access to the Student Recreation Center, access to services at the Student Health Center, use of the Saluki Express bus service that operates around campus and to certain locations throughout the region, and free entry into athletic events.  It will also continue to give them free access to an attorney to help them navigate personal legal problems.  And it will continue to provide for student RSOs, the student-led Green Fund, upgrades and maintenance to campus facilities and the campus computer networks, and other services and obligations necessary to support SIUC's mission and goals.

2 The amount of the Student Insurance Fee is based on actual market rate pricing by the vendor and is determined by plan enrollment, previous plan claims history, and medical inflation.  The actual amount of the Student Insurance Fee for Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 will be $775 per semester.

3 This General Student Fee will continue to benefit off-campus and online students by providing for course design and development, startup costs, instruction and administrative support, and the necessary technological and other infrastructure to support course development and delivery for these distance learning courses.
