Services and Activities fees are one component of the total tuition and fees that students pay. S&A fees can only be used to support non-academic activities, events, facilities/equipment, and programming.
WHO MAY REQUEST FUNDS?
Any WSU Spokane group, organization or individual may request funds.
WHAT CAN FUNDS BE USED FOR?

- Providing a student environment which contributes to cultural and social growth;
- Providing services/activities and facilities that are otherwise unavailable; and,
- A reasonable balance between events aimed at attracting the highest student attendance and events aimed at specific community and/or cultural events.
WHAT IS THE SOURCE OF THE FUNDING?
A portion of WSU Spokane student tuition is earmarked as “Services and Activities (S and A) Fees.”
