However, an additional fee may be required for football admission or some activities because of less than full-time, academic enrollment.

Course Participation Fees

Fees in addition to T&RF are associated with some courses which require the use of special equipment, facilities or materials. These fees, which vary by course, will be collected as part of registration.
