  • Where does the money come from?
    The Activity and Service Fee Budget is derived from student fees paid per credit hour enrolled. For the 2019-2020 fiscal year the A&S Fee is $10.18 per credit hour. We budgeted for 427,000 credit hours. This means the overall A&S fee revenue was set to be $4,373,860. For more information, please email the Student Body Treasurer at sgasbt@unf.edu.
  • What are Activity and Services fees and how do they affect me?

    The Activity & Service Fee essentially serves to provide funding for student departments, services, resources, and events throughout the year. As students, we are the sole contributors to and receivers of the benefits of this fee. It is in the best interest of all students to be aware of them, as well.

    A&S fees are authorized under Florida Statute 1009.24. Fees are collected by the University of North Florida as a component of tuition in the amount recommended annually by the Student Fee Assessment Committee and approved by the UNF Board of Trustees. Florida Statute 1009.24
