Privilege Fee Breakdown 2018-2019

The K-State campus-wide mandatory student fee, or better known as the Privilege Fees, is set by the Board of Regents from the recommendation made by Student Governing Association and the University administration.  This fee is used to support a variety of non-instructional student service activities.  Students are entitled to services at Lafene Health Center, The Recreational Complex, the K-State Student Union, Counseling Services, and many more entities, all of which provide extracurricular benefits for students.

Any increases to these fees have to be proposed to the Privilege Fee Committee, and approved by the Student Senate. This all student committee is responsible for the review of the line-item fees and addresses issues of long-term financial planning. This committee ultimately determines the privilege fee amount that each student pays at the beginning of each semester and what services students get from this fee.  For the fall and spring semesters of 2018-2019, the privilege fee amount is $444 per semester or $888 a year.
