Information Technology Fee:
An Information Technology Fee is charged to all undergraduate and graduate students at all campus locations. The IT fee supports digital services such as internet access, e-mail, security, help services, software, computer labs, library resources, and wireless networks. Even if the student is not physically studying on campus, their e-mail account is still active and they have full access to the internet and other services. This is a mandatory fee.
See: http://reports.it.psu.edu/it-fee/it-fee-2016 for further information.
The purpose of the Activities Fee is to improve the out-of-class experience and improve the educational climate at Penn State. The Activities Fee is charged to students based on their status or location.
Income from the Activities Fee is used to increase the number and quality of activities such as clubs and organizations, recreational and fitness programs, lectures, music and cultural programs, and other campus programs related to the total learning environment.
Each campus has established a student-run committee that allocates these funds.
For information on the University Park Allocation Committee, please visit http://www.clubs.psu.edu/upac.
The Facilities Fee has been established to provide a funding source for capital projects designed to enhance student activities, fitness, and recreation.
Projects to be undertaken at each campus will be identified by the appropriate campus officials. Student input will be obtained in determining priorities and ideas for potential projects through campus advisory groups that represent all constituencies.
