Description of Mandatory Fees

Activity fee

Student activity fees are used by the Division of Student Affairs or registered student organizations to provide recreational, entertaining, educational or culturally enriching programs or services that do not solely support academic programs. This includes student and professional staff members in the Office of Student Involvement.  Programs, services and staff positions must directly benefit or serve the GGC student body, and events and services must be free and open to all GGC students. This does not include ordinary or operational expenses of denominational or sectarian religious activities, partisan political activities, social fraternities and sororities, nor charitable causes or contributions.  Student activity fees cannot be used for the direct benefit of faculty, staff or community members or for fundraisers, benefits or registered student organization members-only field trips or events.

Athletic fee

The athletic fee supports the operation of intercollegiate athletics including facilities, operations and the issuance of a bond package.

Campus Infrastructure and Improvement Fee

The Campus Infrastructure and Improvement Fee will be utilized to help maintain and improve GGC’s campus infrastructure.

Freshman tutorial fee

The freshman tutoring fee is applied in order to maintain and expand quality tutoring offerings across campus. Freshmen require special attention because they are just beginning college. We want to ensure that they receive the support and attention now and in the future.

Health fee

The health fee is used to offset costs associated with the physical and emotional health needs of students including basic first aid, health-related education, counseling and disability services.

Health and wellness fee

The health and wellness fee is used to support the bond repayment of the Wellness and Recreation Center.  Additionally, the fee supports procurement, staffing, maintenance, programming, facilities and equipment purchases related to the Wellness and Recreation Center.  The Health and Wellness Fee is used by the Division of Student Affairs to support student programming initiatives including, but not limited to, wellness, recreation and Outdoor Adventure (e.g. hiking, sailing, skiing, eco tours and rafting trips) open to all students.

Institutional fee

The institutional fee is determined by the Board of Regents and goes towards offsetting the gap between the cost of instruction, what the state budgets and what tuition will not cover.

International studies fee

The international studies fee is used to offset the costs of the Office of Internationalization, program development, international educational initiatives, student development programs related to international topics, and the increase of international study abroad opportunities in alignment with the mission of the institution and USG strategic goals.

Library access fee

The Library access fee is applied in order to maintain and expand quality library offerings. This fee will ensure college freshmen will have access to library resources and services to support their scholarship throughout their careers at GGC.

Parking fee

The parking fee provides funding for the newly constructed parking deck, residential surface parking, future parking decks and maintenance of all parking.  Permits may be picked up at the Office of Public Safety location in Building A. Payment of this mandatory fee provides all students with a parking permit and allows access to the appropriately designated parking lots as well as the parking deck.  These permits are valid in designated student spaces on a first come/first served basis.

Student Center fee

The student center fee is used by the Division of Student Affairs to fund the design and construction of the GGC Student Center as well as the continued bond repayment.  The student center fee will also be used for operational costs associated with the building that benefit and serve GGC students.  These costs include necessary equipment and furniture, replacement of equipment and furniture, professional and student staff support, and other Student Center services.

Technology fee

Technology fee revenues will be used primarily for the direct benefit of students to assist them in meeting their educational objectives.  Access to technology is important to the collegiate academic experience including productivity tools, specific software packages, databases, specialized computers and printers, infrastructure, etc.
