The Comprehensive Fee is a consolidation of campus-required fees that support several university services. The Comprehensive Fee is paid by all students at the University at Buffalo, unless they meet fee waiver requirements. Comprehensive Fee components, except for the transcript fee, are assessed at a per-credit hour basis for part-time students.
The Comprehensive Fee was implemented in 1998. It is a consolidation of SUNY and campus-required fees, which support several University services and programs. All students at the University at Buffalo pay the Comprehensive Fee, unless they meet fee waiver requirements available for some fees. Many of the schools in the Mid-American Conference, of which UB is a member, also have a comprehensive approach to fees and several American Association of Universities and SUNY campuses have also instituted a Comprehensive Fee.
