Enrollment Related Fees


To describe the fees that will be assessed when a) a student enrolls late b) a student withdraws and then reactivates the enrollment for a given semester/term.

Applies to: 

Lawrence/Edwards Campus students

Policy Statement: 

Fees can be associated with enrollment activity (see the Comprehensive Fee Schedule for a current list of fees). Late and reactivation fees may be assessed once the first published day of the semester/term has occurred. 

Late Enrollment Fee:

A late enrollment fee is assessed for initial enrollment that occurs under one of the following conditions:

  • Enrollment in a standard full-term course for the fall, spring, or summer terms: assessment begins at 12:00am on the first published day of classes.
  • Enrollment in a short/minimester course: assessment begins at 12:00am of the first published day of the specific class added.

The late enrollment fee is assessed once per semester/term.

Reactivation Request:

When a student chooses to withdraw from a current or future semester, the student's account is inactivated. If the student decides to re-enroll for that semester, the student must first submit a reactivation request to the Office of the University Registrar. There is no fee associated with reactivation.

Exclusions or Special Circumstances: 

Enrollment related fees may be waived in accordance with the Petition for Tuition and Fee Refund policy.
