Most UW–Madison students are assessed segregated fees in addition to tuition. Students with tuition remissions are required to pay theese fees. Fellowships paid through the Graduate School (not including Vilas travel awards) have segregated fees waived in addition to tuition. Segregated fees are funds dedicated to supporting various student service programs and organizations. The student government on campus is responsible for the allocation of these funds. The Student Services Finance Committee (SSFC) of the Associated Students of Madison (ASM) submits budget recommendations to the ASM Student Council and the Chancellor as to how student fees should be spent
More information about segregated fees can be found on the Office of the Registrar's Tuition & Fees webpage.
