Read the descriptions carefully to determine which fees may apply to you.

Students enrolled in .5 or more credits at UMC pay a $250 UMC Campus Fee each semester. The Crookston Campus Fee helps to fund technological infrastructure and student academic support including advisors, tutoring, library, career counseling, and accessibility.

Students also pay a $275 Durable Goods Fee each semester. This fee covers the costs associated with providing students with: notebook computers; pre-installed software; access to laser printers; power and LAN connections in classrooms, residence halls, and lounges; assistance from the Computer Help Desk; e-mail system; student Web page account; on-line library card catalogs; and World Wide Web access. Learn more about the Student Laptop Computer Program.

NOTE: Students issued a notebook computer must sign a rental contract. Students are responsible for lost/theft of the notebook computer. UMC limits the students liability for damages to $500 per occurrence. Failure to return the computer at the end of the semester or upon cancellation from school will result in a late fee assessment of $50, and a weekly charge of $31. If the computer is not returned upon demand, the student will be assessed the current market value of the notebook computer. Students are encouraged to read the contract carefully and to arrange for personal insurance coverage for the notebook.

These fees are not charged in summer semester, for most students.  If you have any questions about the fees you are being charged, please contact us.

If you are 1) admitted to a degree program, and 2) registered for 6 or more credits per semester (or 3 or more credits during summer term) that count toward the automatic assessment of the Student Services Fee, you are required by the University of Minnesota to have health plan coverage. If you meet both of these criteria you will be automatically enrolled in the University-sponsored Student Health Benefit Plan.

By requiring students to have health plan coverage, the University ensures all students have access to medical care and can maintain good health, which is essential for academic success. You may choose to waive the University-sponsored Student Health Benefit Plan by providing proof of enrollment in an alternative eligible health plan.

Please note that if you are enrolled into the Regents Scholarship Program or the Senior Citizen Education Program (SCEP), you are not eligible for the student health benefit plan. Contact the Office of Student Health Benefits with questions about eligibility for the Student Health Benefit Plan.
