Fees are implemented only after careful scrutiny, and in an effort to contribute to the betterment and general welfare of the UCO campus community, as well as the individual students. In order to implement fees, UCO must formally submit any fee changes in detailed request outlining why a new or increased fee is necessary, and exactly how the funds will be utilized. In addition, part of the approval process required by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, is to meet with various student organizations to explain and receive feedback on each potential new or increased fee. Interestingly, there are numerous fees that have been implemented and/or raised due to student-driven initiatives. 

UCO assesses mandatory fees each semester to all student accounts. Mandatory fees are used to support the mission of UCO and to support service facilities, such as the Nigh University Center, health care infirmaries and recreational facilities, as well as other support services used for the purpose of enhancing student life, including scholarships, student travel and student organizations.

The Fall 2019 semester, UCO will charge all mandatory fees as a single fee for simplicity to student billing. Below you will find a breakdown of the mandatory fees.
