Services & Activities Fees

Spending Guidelines

Each year, the Services and Activities Fee Committee proposes and the Board of Regents approves program priorities and corresponding budget levels for University organizations funded by Services and Activities Fees (S&A Fees). The University collects these fees from students at registration and allocates the funds to budgets either as direct allocations from the Board of Regents or indirectly through other organizations. (See RCW 28B.15.041, 28B.15.044, and 28B.15.045.)

In either case, University personnel are responsible for spending the money in an acceptable and appropriate manner, following state of Washington and Washington State University guidelines.

This document provides an overview of the more important rules that apply to S&A fee expenditures.
