Student Rec Center Fee Waiver Requests

UMaine Students may request to have their Recreation Center fee waived for the semester if all of their coursework or progress towards their degree occurs entirely off-campus during that semester. This is the only criteria used to waive the fee.

The Recreation Center Fee will not be waived for any student who comes to the UMaine Campus for any portion of a class or coursework during that semester, or utilizes any resources physically located on the UMaine campus to complete degree requirements, regardless of whether or not they use the facility. Additionally, per UMS policy, students who are dependents of UMaine faculty/staff can not be granted a fee waiver based solely on their parent already having a Voucher Pass.

You must request a fee waiver for each semester in which you would like to be considered for one. Fee waiver requests are reviewed only after the add/drop period has expired each semester, and will be reviewed/processed in the order in which they are received.

To avoid late fees, you must pay your student bill in full (including the Rec Center Fee) before the due date, even if you have submitted a fee waiver request. Requesting a Rec Fee waiver is not a guarantee that you will receive one, and late fees can not be waived.

If your Recreation Center Fee waiver request is approved, the waiver will be applied to your bill by the Bursar’s Office. It will appear on your bill as a separate line called Rec Center Fee Retraction. You will see the Retraction on your bill once it has been approved and processed, and you will not receive any other notification of the status of your request.
