University Services Fee - $45

Request a Refund at the Student Service Center with valid Ferris Student ID or by email, from your Ferris email address, at [email protected].

This fee pays for the following:

  • The majority of campus entertainment, including (but not limited to) Registered Student Organization (RSO) events and travel, concerts, Five Star Events, speakers, comedians, and magicians. If you elect to have this fee refunded, it could prevent you from attending certain activities or receiving discounted ticket prices and could cause your group the inability to request funding from the Finance Division of Student Government.
  • Student Government, which sponsors the BIG Event (community service program), Pancakes with the President,  the Leadership Dinner, emergency preparation meetings for students, and supports RSOs with funding.
  • Club sports
  • Racquet & Fitness Center, which covers court time (tennis/racquetball/wallyball), fitness room and facility access. It allows for member rates on tennis and pickleball classes. Amenities at the facility include indoor/outdoor tennis and pickleball courts, racquetball court/wallyball, weight room, exercise room, fitness room, sauna (men’s/women’s), programs (tennis and pickleball), as well as free parking. For more information visit the Racquet & Fitness Center's webpage. If you have this fee refunded, you will need to pay $8 for each visit and non-member rates for court fees and classes. A valid student ID is required to participate in any student group activities.

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 fourth 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.
