Any student wishing to opt-out of an optional AMS or Faculty-Specific Fee—or from the AMS Health and Dental Plans—may do so online from Tuesday, September 8th until Wednesday, September 30th. Please note: opting-out of the AMS Health and Dental Plan requires proof of coverage by another plan.
Additional information for international students can be found here.
Virtually all student activity fees are established by majority votes in campus-wide referenda. In order for a fee to appear on a referendum ballot it must collect signatures in support from 1% of AMS members and/or be approved for the ballot by the elected legislative branch of the student government (AMS Assembly). Most student activity fees are subject to review by referendum every three years, giving students an opportunity to either confirm or reject support for individual fees.

Please note: tuition is due September 1st, but student activity fees are not due until September 30th. Your SOLUS account should show Future and Current Due amounts.
If you have not paid for your student activity fees by September 1st, this should not affect student card validation or participation in open enrollment.
Students who formally complete their degree program or withdraw from the University must submit their student card to the Office of the University Registrar, Gordon Hall, Room 125 in order to obtain a refund of student activity fees.
100% of mandatory student activity fees are refunded to students who complete or withdraw by September 30 and 50% of mandatory student fees are refunded to students who complete or withdraw by January 31.
Optional activity fees (including Health and Dental Plan premiums) are non-refundable after the opt-out period ends.
