Mandatory Enrollment Fees

Wellness Fee

The mandatory Wellness Fee provides funding for several health and wellness resources that benefit all Seattle University students, including access to TimelyCare. In addition, the wellness fee provides access to the university fitness center, online and in-person health and wellness programs, and allows Seattle U an opportunity to develop new resources and services for on-campus and online students. 

Technology Fee

The mandatory Technology Fee makes up a small portion of the funding for Information Technology Services (ITS). In part, the Technology Fee is used to assist with the cost of core student systems (e.g., Canvas, mySeattleU, Microsoft Office), Public Safety systems, Internet service, networking, and much more.

Matriculation Fee

The one-time mandatory Matriculation Fee offsets the cost of maintaining and storing academic records.

Orientation Fees

The one-time mandatory orientation fee enables a holistic engagement experience that supports transition to the Redhawk Community. The fee offsets the cost of sessions and events such as expert speakers and event facilitators, community meals, and student mementos.
