Segregated Fees

Unity In the Community dancingAll students are assessed segregated fees, in addition to instructional fees, for services, programs, and facilities supporting the UW-River Falls mission.

Segregated fees are allocable or non-allocable.

  • Allocable: support mainly student-organized activities, e.g., Student Senate and Student Organizations
  • Non-allocable: provide support for student-services operations and facilities, e.g., Student Health Services and the University Center

In consultation with the Chancellor, students have primary responsibility for setting the allocable segregated fee budgets. The UW System Board of Regents confirms the final budget.

Campus administration determines the final recommendations for the non-allocable fee budgets. However, students are invited to participate in the non-allocable fee budget review process.
