How Your Student Fee Works

Academic Year 2020-2021

All students registered for 7 or more credit hours in the fall and spring terms and 6 or more credit hours in the summer are automatically assessed the Student Recreation Facility Fee by the university. Each semester has a separate fee and access coincides with the current semester’s enrollment. The Recreation Facility Fee allows students to use campus-based indoor and outdoor facilities, as well as virtual offerings, as a self-service participant. 

This is a mandatory fee charged to all campus students enrolled in the credit threshold regardless of usage. Students who are enrolled in fewer credit hours have the option to add the Recreation Activity & Facility Fee to their student account to have access to MizzouRec. This can be done by visiting the Rec through our Southeast Entrance and stopping by our Member & Guest Services Desk.

The Rec Center Fee for Spring 2021 is $154.23 and provides access from January 4, 2021 – May 16, 2021.

Students whose classes are 100% online may apply for a fee adjustment of their MizzouRec fee. Criteria for a fee adjustment include:

  • All classes are listed as e-Learning in myZou or instructor verification that courses are 100% virtual
  • Live 50 or more miles from Columbia
  • Must have been assessed the student rec fee – verify in myZou – listed as “Recreation Center Ugr” or “Recreation Center Grd”
  • Doesn’t have an active contract with Residential Life

If you have a medical condition that you feel prevents you from using the physical or virtual services or facilities MizzouRec offers, please reach out to your access advisor to discuss your request and determine eligibility. If you have not yet established accommodations with the Disability Center, complete a new student application. Be prepared to provide third-party documentation regarding your specifics, as this will aid in determining eligibility and future accommodations.

Applications for fee adjustments open Tuesday, January 19, and will close at 8 a.m. February 8. The review will begin shortly after the application process closes, and students will be notified of a final decision after the closing date.
