Course Fee Descriptions

Academic Excellence Fee - Used to enhance academic excellence at the University, including the hiring of faculty to teach additional course sections needed to meet student needs, reduction of class sizes to improve the quality of instruction, operation of instructional facilities to serve UNO's student population, and support services at the heart of the academic enterprise, notably libraries and computing. This fee is $10 per credit hour with a maximum of $120 per semester.

Technology Fee - This fee is assessed at $5.00 per credit hour up to a maximum of $75 per semester. The fee is dedicated to the acquisition, installation, maintenance, and intelligent use of state-of-the-art technology, solely for the purpose of supporting and enhancing student life while preparing graduates for the workplaces of the twenty-first century.

Registration Fee - A non refundable $10 fee assessed to full-time and part-time students for completion of the registration process.

Utility Surcharge (Fuel Recovery) - The fee is used to meet energy costs which exceed the University's allotted energy budget. All funds collected are restricted and can only be applied to energy costs that exceed the energy budget. These funds are used only after all budgeted state dollars for utilities are expended. Utility costs are monitored in order to adjust the charge up or down as needed.

Operational Fee - The operational fee was imposed by the 2004 Legislature to cover unfunded state mandates. This includes increases in the retirement system costs, health insurance costs not funded through the state general fund appropriation, and the enhancement of instructional programs at the University.

Non-Resident Fee - This fee is charged to accounts when the student is not a resident of Louisiana. To establish residency, please contact the Office of Admissions.
