Optional Campus Fees
Students can choose to purchase a variety of optional products and services offered by KU and affiliate organizations, including:
- All-Sports Combo Package
- Lied Center Performance Pass
- Beak 'Em Bucks
- Career Assessments
- Jr. Williams Fund
- KU Fit Group Fitness Pass
- Contributions to the Board of Class Officers
- Contributions to the Student Legislative Awareness Board
- Alumni option for KUMC nurses and health professions
Some vendors even offer discounts on their products and services when purchased through the Optional Campus Fees program.
Optional Campus Fees are only available during the enrollment period for New Student Orientation for new students and during the main enrollment period for returning students. Optional Campus Fees are not available during add/drop times.
Students may purchase directly from campus vendors during the semester; however, the vendors will require payment at the time of sale. Products and services purchased through the Optional Campus Fees program will be billed with students' tuition. Participating students are able to receive their product or services at any time during the ensuing semester or year (depending on the product or service). Optional Campus Fees are now integrated with your online enrollment process.
