The Student Assessment Fee (SAF) is a self-imposed fee, charged to Western Michigan University (WMU) students attending classes on the main campus in Kalamazoo, MI. Registered Student Organizations (RSO) at WMU are given the opportunity to request funding from a portion of this SAF fund for programming or operational purposes. The application, distribution, and requirements for an RSO to receive a portion of the SAF differ depending on the allocation body. RSOs can request SAF funds from four different allocation bodies, Western Student Association Allocation Committee, Graduate Financial Allocation Committee, and the Sports Club Council. The Campus Activities Board is not an allocating body, but may provide funding support for collaborations with CAB. The Western Student Association may also provide funding support through collaborations.
The Student Sustainability Fee (SSF) is a self-imposed fee, charged to WMU students attending classes on the main campus in Kalamazoo, MI. RSOs as well as individual students at WMU can apply for a portion of the SSF for projects that foster a culture of sustainability. The portion of the SSF available for sustainability initiatives and projects by RSOs and individual students is allocated through the Student Sustainability Grant Allocation Committee.
