Student Activities Fee

Purpose of the Student Activity Fee

The purpose of the Student Activity Fee is to provide funds to improve the co-curricular environment for students at Penn State Lehigh Valley. The following principles guide the administration of the fee:

  • Revenue raised will remain at the campus on which it was generated.
  • Revenue should not replace current Student Affairs general funds activities monies.
  • Money generated by the fee should be used for student activities and issues.
  • The student activity fee will not be folded into general tuition funds.
  • The funds raised should be allocated by an appropriate student committee or organization on each campus.
  • The use of the fee should be public knowledge and made available to students.

Any student, staff, or faculty member of the campus community can request activity fee funds. Requests for funds are made on an activity fee proposal form which can be completed online.

The Student Activity Fee Committee of Penn State Lehigh Valley consists of the following members:

  • Director of Student Affairs (chair)
