Segregated Fees

Each semester, the students at UWM pay around $650 in segregated fees to fund services and activities that improve student life. These segregated fees are split into two categories: allocable, and non-allocable. Non-allocable segregated fees include such services as the Student Union, the Norris Health Center, and the Children's Learning Center. Students are consulted and have a say in how much students will be charged in non-allocable segregated fees, but have more direct decision-making ability over how much is charged in allocable segregated fees. Entities funded with allocable seg fees include the Office of Student Life, Parking, Student Involvement, Campus Activities, Student Organization grants, B.O.S.S., and the Student Association.

The Senate Finance Committee hears applications for segregated fee funding from eligible university departments and student organizations. Through weeks of research and deliberations, the committee recommends a per-semester segregated fee level for each entity which is then charged to students to fund the services and activities. Each $1 per semester equates to roughly $20,500, although this varies depending on enrollment.
