Course fees are established to cover the costs related to a particular course, for example, the costs associated with the bulk purchase of self-assessments or copyright fees.
Laboratory fees are defined as charges made to students to underwrite, in whole or in part, the cost of service, rentals, and consumable supplies utilized in a laboratory environment. These include, for example, such materials as manuals, chemicals, glassware, protective or other clothing, computer related software and expendables, paints, brushes and canvasses.
Miscellaneous student fees are defined as all fees other than UPFF, course, and laboratory fees charged to students incidental to the providing of instruction. Examples of fees included within this category are application fees, transcript fees, teacher placement fees, special instructional fees, late payment fees, and returned check fees.
