UM students update:

Sport and Rec Fee

The Sport and Rec Fee was approved by the University’s Board of Governors in 2011 and supports the UM’s commitment to active living, sport and recreation.  

The Fee is mandatory and applied to all students’ tuition based on their status of part-time or full-time study, regardless of access to facilities as the fee is not a user fee. With the goal of universally promoting wellness across our campuses through access to programming, the decision was made to not allow for opting out.
