 Fee Descriptions

Academic Excellence Fee - Used to enhance academic excellence at the University, including the hiring of faculty to teach additional course sections needed to meet student needs, reduction of class sizes to improve the quality of instruction, operation of instructional facilities to serve UNO's student population, and support services at the heart of the academic enterprise, notably libraries and computing. This fee is $10 per credit hour with a maximum of $120 per semester.

Technology Fee - This fee is assessed at $5.00 per credit hour up to a maximum of $75 per semester. The fee is dedicated to the acquisition, installation, maintenance, and intelligent use of state-of-the-art technology, solely for the purpose of supporting and enhancing student life while preparing graduates for the workplaces of the twenty-first century.

Registration Fee - A non refundable $10 fee assessed to full-time and part-time students for completion of the registration process.

Utility Surcharge (Fuel Recovery) - The fee is used to meet energy costs which exceed the University's allotted energy budget. All funds collected are restricted and can only be applied to energy costs that exceed the energy budget. These funds are used only after all budgeted state dollars for utilities are expended. Utility costs are monitored in order to adjust the charge up or down as needed.

Building Use Fee - Beginning Fall 2013, a Building Use Fee will be charged to a student's account. It is authorized by House Bill 671. This fee shall be used to construct, acquire, repair, maintain, operate, or improve the facilities and physical infrastructure of this university.

Operational Fee - The operational fee was imposed by the 2004 Legislature to cover unfunded state mandates. This includes increases in the retirement system costs, health insurance costs not funded through the state general fund appropriation, and the enhancement of instructional programs at the University.

Graduate Enhancement Fee - This fee is a refundable fee used to support the extra expenses associated with the University's graduate school programs and is in addition to the academic excellence fee. The Graduate Enhancement Fee is applied only if a student is classified as a graduate student. The fee is $33.00 per credit hour with no maximum. (Please note that Pre-MBA students are classified as graduate students and will be charged the Graduate Enhancement Fee. Students classified as GMBA and EMBA are excluded from the fee.)

Non-Resident Fee - This fee is charged to accounts when the student is not a resident of Louisiana. To establish residency, please contact the Office of Admissions.

Other Mandatory Fees - These fees are used by the University to aid in various funding aspects of the University including campus beautification, student health services, the University Center, and a number of other items.
