About fees

UNL calls its Student Fees "University Program and Facilities Fees" (UPFF). Although paid by students for programs and services oriented to students, UPFF assessments are not "user fees." They are, rather, part of the cost of attending the University.

Allocations of fees: where the money is spent

Fund A fees go to student-run organizations and services, and Fund B fees to go programs and services administered by the University.

Who Decides Where the Fees Are Allocated?


UNL students have the unique advantage over many other colleges in that student fees are assessed only with the advice and consent of student government.

FUND A: The ASUN Committee for Fees Allocation (CFA) recommends Fund A allocations to the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, who then forwards those recommendations (plus any suggested modifications) to the Chancellor. The Chancellor makes final allocation decisions.

FUND B: It has been customary for the CFA to review annual budget requests submitted by Fund B agencies and to make recommendations through the ASUN Senate to the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs on UPFF Fund B assessments, who then forwards those recommendations (plus any additions or changes) to the Chancellor. The Chancellor reviews the recommendations, and then makes final allocation requests to the Board of Regents, who have final authority over Fund B allocations.
