Summer Student Fees
UA Network Charge—The UA network charge covers rapidly rising costs, especially in the maintenance and enhancement of the university-wide technology infrastructure. A three percent network charge is applied on a course-by-course basis to tuition for credit courses, and fees in lieu of tuition for non-credit courses. The minimum network charge per course is $5.
Technology— The technology fee of $5 per credit hour to a maximum of $60 is used to support academic technology.
Activity—The activity fee of $2 per credit hour is used to support student activities in the summer.
Facilities— The facilities fee of $2 per credit hour is used for construction and maintenance of university facilities that enhance the academic experience.
Parking— Students who choose to park a vehicle at any on- or off-campus UA, UAF, or Community and Technical College location are required to have a parking permit displayed on the vehicle at all times, including evenings. See Parking Services for more information.
Associated Students of UAF—All students enrolled in three or more credits during Summer Sessions will be charged a $10 ASUAF fee. This fee is used to provide basic student government administrative support services during the summer. Services included are KSUA (student radio station), recycling program, student concert board and student senate activities.
Student Health and Counseling Center—Students enrolled in six or more credits during the summer will be assessed a health center fee of $70. This covers basic medical and counseling services at the Student Health and Counseling Center on campus. Students who meet all of the following conditions may waive the Student Health and Counseling Center fee: 1) no courses on the Fairbanks campus or at University Park, 2) not living in university housing and 3) not purchasing the university student health insurance plan.
In addition to the general fees listed above, individual courses may have course fees to cover such items as lab materials, field trip expenses, insurance, etc. Fees specific to a course will be listed with that individual course.
Summer Late Fee Policy If you miss the scheduled deadline for fee payment, you will be charged a late payment fee of $100.
Late Add Fee — If you are given permission to add a class after the last day to pay tuition and fees, you will be charged a late fee of $50 which must be paid within five business days. No late fee will be charged when:
you add a late start course during the regular registration period for that course, or
you change from one section to a different section of the same course, or
you add a course to replace a canceled course in which you were previously enrolled.
If, after you pay your tuition and fees, you are allowed into a class for which you have been wait-listed, payment must be made within five business days or late fees will apply. The late add fee is refundable only if all classes you have registered for are canceled.
Tuition may be refunded to students who drop courses depending on the date the action is taken. See Dates and Deadlines for refund dates. Material, field trip, technology, network and activity fees are only refundable during the 100% refund period. Refund processing is automatic for students who officially drop courses by published refund deadlines.
Exception to Policy: Appeal for Refund of Tuition - Appeal for Refund of Tuition and Late Fee Removal forms are available online or through UAF Office of the Bursar in Signers’ Hall at the Fairbanks campus. Once received, the appeal will be evaluated by a campus-wide committee, which will return a decision to the student. The decision of the committee is final. Contact the UAF Office of the Bursar (474-7384) for additional information.
Health insurance is highly recommended for all students—especially students taking courses that involve outdoor activities or other elements of risk. International students are required to have health insurance.
Students enrolled in at least six credit hours during the summer are eligible to enroll in the university sponsored health insurance. Students who had health insurance during the spring semester may also purchase insurance coverage whether or not enrolled for summer.
