Student Services Fee


The Arizona Board of Regents approved the Student Services Fee in 2009. The Student Services Fee Board allocates approximately $3 million each year to departments across the University of Arizona.

The Student Services Fee funds projects that enhance the student experience and positively impact student life.  The fee has funded a broad variety of projects providing expanded services and programs for UA students including:

  • Academic Support Services - Think Tank, Thrive Center Peer Mentors, Vets Education and Support Services
  • Career-Related Opportunities - GPSC Travel Grants, AZ Job Shadow Program
  • Improved Access to Financial Aid - Scholarship Universe, Project Rush
  • Student Safety and Support Initiatives - Safe Ride, Campus Pantry, Student Legal Services

Departments from across the University of Arizona have applied for funding including;  ASUA Student Government, Graduate & Professional Student Council, Office of Student Financial Aid, Veterans Education & Transition Services, and the Thrive Center

UA students help determine where funds are directed, via a comprehensive surveys issued each year. The Student Services Fee Advisory Board (SSFAB) recommends funding priorities. University oversight of the Board is provided through the Office of the Provost, and funds are distributed following established University business procedures and policies.

Applications for project proposals are typically submitted in early December with proposal review occurring early in the Spring Semester. Information about how to apply for funding and the specific dates that the application opens and closes may be found on the Apply For Funding Page.

General comments and questions may be submitted to the SSFAB through this form.
