Explanation of Fees

Athletic Fee

This fee is assessed to all athletes each Fall and Spring semester. It helps to maintain athletic equipment on campus.

Change of Course Fee (Add/Drop Fee)

This is a billing fee that is assessed each time a course is added or dropped after a term has begun.

Deferment Fee

This fee is assessed when the balance for the semester is not paid in full by the first due date of the semester. (It is not assessed for traditional students during the Spring and Fall semesters.)

Eagle I Initiative Fee

This is a technology fee assessed each semester. It helps provide Faulkner students with up-to-date technology including facilities, educational tools, and support services for the purpose of enhancing student life, learning, and work place preparation. The fee is higher for traditional students in the Fall and Spring semesters because they will receive an iPad as part of the Eagle iAdvantage Program.

Emergency Response Fee

This fee is assessed each semester to students who attend classes on one of our campuses. It supports our Eagle Alert notification system to alert students of emergencies and unexpected campus closures (mainly due to weather). During the Fall and Spring semesters, this is included in the General Fee for traditional students, so there is not a separate charge for traditional students during those semesters.

Freshman Experience Fee

This course fee assessed in conjunction with FAF 1111 Faulkner Foundations. It is used to fund course activities and supplies for the course and Welcome Week.

General Fee

This fee is assessed to traditional students each Fall and Spring semester. Among other things, it helps provide for admission to on-campus sporting events, student health services, use of the Multiplex, printed copies in the computer labs, on-campus parking, student government, an on-campus police department and emergency notification system, as well as the upkeep of various campus facilities.

Lab Fees

These are assessed in conjunction with specific math, science, and computer courses for materials and specialized equipment required for those courses.

Late Payment Fee

This is assessed when a payment is five or more days past due.

Online Course Fee

This fee is assessed in conjunction with each fully-online course for upkeep and student support of our online platform.

Registration Fee

This fee is assessed each semester that a student is enrolled. During the Fall and Spring semesters, this is included in the General Fee for traditional students, so there is not a separate charge for traditional students during those semesters. Funds from this fee support the registration process (advising, online registration, creating and maintaining student records, etc.).

Returned Check Fee

Transfer Experience Fee
