The General Fee is charged to all students -- resident and non-resident, graduate and undergraduate, full-time and part-time, residential and commuters. It is charged during all sessions (including summer and winter sessions), and at all course locations. This includes internships, student teaching, the Philadelphia and Allentown locations, and any other off-campus sites).

Since it is a generic fee used to support a variety of instructional and student support programs, waivers are limited to:

  • Senior citizens participating in the ESU senior citizen tuition waiver program
  • Certain exchange students (i.e. National Student Exchange Students) and;
  • Students in foreign exchange programs studying abroad

This policy is consistent with existing regulations concerning tuition waiver policies.
