Student Fees

The Service and Activity Fee (S&A Fee) supports nonacademic student activities, programs, and projects on the WSU Pullman campus. It enriches the Coug experience by providing funding for student government, entertainment, student organizations, speakers, facilities, and recreation. 

The S&A Fee is determined by students. Each year, the student-led S&A Fee Committee hears requests and proposals from campus groups, determines allocations, and sends a fee recommendation to the WSU Board of Regents, which gives final approval.  

Student involvement in this process is crucial to ensuring that students have a voice in spaces and programs that are meaningful and engaging to them (and, in some instances, it is governed by the Revised Code of Washington). The process is also a key part of WSU’s shared governance model, which fosters partnership, equity, and accountability by asking students to serve as leaders and representatives on committees and advisory boards.
