Student Services Fee Breakdown 2021-2022
The K-State campus-wide mandatory student fee, now named the Student Services fee (but previously known as the Campus Privilege fee), is set by the Board of Regents from the recommendation made by the 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 the 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 Student Services fee amount that each student pays at the beginning of each semester and what services students get from this fee. For the 2021-2022 academic year, the Student Services fee amount on the Manhattan campus caps out at $465.48 per semester (fall/spring).
Below is the breakdown of the Student Services fee on a per-student basis:
