Spring Alive! Fees

Student Matriculation Fee: $240

All new students will be assessed a one-time Student Matriculation Fee. The Matriculation Fee covers services and programs for new students including orientation/registration programs, Week of Welcome activities, and extended orientation events.  Also included during each orientation program are meals, give-away items (such as t-shirts and pens), university publications, and parking permits for the duration of the program.    

Parents and Guests: $140

The parent/guest fee for the programs is $140. This fee covers meals, a parking permit, university publications received during the program, workshop presentations, staffing, and other program costs.

SIBLINGS:  While we do not encourage younger siblings or children to attend the Spring Alive! orientation program, we understand certain circumstances may require children to attend.

Siblings (ages 0-5)            No charge
Siblings (ages 6-12)          $70 
Siblings (ages 13-17)        $140

Change of Session Fee:

You can change the session you are registered for as long as there is still room in the requested session.  Changes can be made by calling the Office of New Student Programs at 509-335-4242.  Please note a $10 change fee will be assessed each time you change your orientation session.
