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 in the Student Affairs and Academic Initiatives division.

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, Innovate UA  
  • Improved Access to Financial Aid - Scholarship Universe, Project Rush
  • Student Safety and Support Initiatives - Safe Ride, Campus Pantry, Student Legal Services

Departments from across Student Affairs and Academic Initiatives 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 Student Affairs and Enrollment Management office, 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 may be found  here.

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