Comprehensive Fee Waiver

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.

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