The following Ferris State University fees are refundable each semester and ONLY during the first five days of the semester at the locations listed below. Remember refunding the fee will result in a loss of the benefits listed below:

  • Student Activity Fee $20 – at the Student Service Center with valid FSU Student ID

    This fee pays for the majority of campus entertainment including but not limited to: concerts, Five Star Events, speakers, comedians, magicians and Club Sports. If you elect to have this fee refunded, it could prevent you from attending certain activities or receiving discounted ticket prices and also could cause your group the inability to request funding from the Finance Division of Student Government.

  • Student Government Fee $1 – at the Student Service Center with valid FSU Student ID

    Sponsors the BIG Event (community service program), Pancakes with the President, Leadership Dinner, Emergency Preparation meeting for students, and supports RSOs with funding for some events.

  • Health Services $53 – at the Health Center or by sending letter (no fax or email request)

    The Health Services Fee helps to support Birkam Health Center, your campus health care facility.  Birkam Health Center provides high quality, low cost primary health care by licensed health care providers and nurses.  The Health Service Fee is NOT health insurance.  Your health is important to us.  You should only request the fee back if you are under the care of a local primary care provider or have another way of receiving health care if needed.  If you have your fee credited, you will be ineligible to receive services at Birkam Health Center for the semester.  If you find that you’re in need of health care services during the semester you requested the fee back, you will be able to pay the fee at the time of service and will be asked to sign an agreement to not request the fee back the following semester.  To request the fee back, log in to MyFSU, follow the student tab, Life @ FSU to Health Center icon, Healthy Dog Patient Portal.  Click on Forms: “Request for HC Fee Refund" and complete the form.

  • Racquet Facility Fee $16 – at the Racquet and Fitness Facility with valid FSU Student ID

    This facility has indoor and outdoor tennis courts, racquetball courts, aerobic rooms, fitness machines, saunas and free parking. If you have this fee refunded, you will need to pay $8 for each workout visit and $15 per hour for court time.

Students have the first five days of the semester to request a refund. The Student Financial Services center will not refund any cash back to a student until after the drop and add period which is after the 4th day of the semester. If a student owes money, Student Financial Services will reduce what they owe. If a student is getting a financial aid refund, it will be included in the refund. If a student does not owe anything, said student will need to come back to the Timme Center to get the cash refund of those funds after the fifth day of the semester.
