Students holding an assistantship (quarter-time or more) are classified as residents for fee purposes for the terms during which their appointments are held and any adjacent Summer Sessions in which they are enrolled. They are not assessed a technology fee.

This does not include scholarships for Summer Session enrollment. Rates are based on a registration of 9 semester hours (or more) and are prorated as necessary.

* This includes the following fees: technology, student activities, student services, student union, building, recreation facility, arts & cultural events, professional enhancement, student health, and mental health.
