WAIVE YOUR FEES WHILE ABROAD!!!

If you are studying abroad during Maymester or Summer and will not be registering for any other classes during these sessions, you can waive your transportation, health, and Ramsey fees when you register for study abroad classes.

Registering for a class coded REGT will NOT automatically waive these fees, but will ALLOW the student to do so.   If you do not waive them, you will be charged them.

The technology fee cannot be waived. If you have any questions about waiving fees for study abroad, contact the study abroad office or the bursar.
