Student Activity Fee
Where Does My Money Go?
Financial support for co-curricular programs comes from the Student Activity Fee, which all undergraduate and graduate students pay each semester. The fee is assessed on a per credit hour basis up to a maximum of 12 credit hours.
Without the money from the Student Activity Fee, Indiana University Southeast would not be able to offer many of the activities or sponsor the organizations that develop and enrich student life at Indiana University Southeast.
