Comprehensive Fee Waiver

The Comprehensive Fee waiver policy is currently under review for Fall 2020.

In order to receive the Comprehensive Fee Waiver, a student’s study must take place outside of the University at Buffalo grounds. If a waiver is granted, the Health Services, Transportation, and Campus Life Fees will be waived. Students cannot waive the College Fee, Technology Fee or Transcript Fee components. Graduate and professional students are not charged the Athletics and Recreation Fees.

Employees of the University are not eligible for a Comprehensive Fee waiver.

Waiver requests are handled per semester. Review the chart that summarizes the data available on previous academic years, plus the most recently completed semester.
