Why do I need to pay the Commitment Fee?

  • The Commitment Fee allows the University to more effectively plan for class offerings and student resources.
  • The Commitment Fee pays for vital transition and transfer services including University Orientation (New Freshman), transfer advising (Transfer Students), and Welcome Week (all students).
  • The Commitment Fee helps the University to identify students earlier who are in need of financial assistance.
  • The Commitment Fee will need to be paid in order for students to register for university classes (all students) and University Orientation (New Freshman).
  • A paid Commitment Fee maintains a student's eligibility and priority in the on-campus housing assignment process

Deferment of the Commitment Fee

  • Students may apply for a financial hardship deferment if they feel they are unable to pay the Commitment Fee. This will allow the student to pay the Commitment Fee when payment of tuition expenses is due rather than before the May 1 deadline for fall semester or December 1 for spring semester.

    Students requesting a financial hardship deferment must complete the Free Application for Federal Financial Aid in addition to the deferment application.
  • If a student chooses not to attend SUU, the student forfeits the full amount of their Commitment Fee.
