Course Materials Fee
There is a course material fee of $40 for every in-person activity course.
This doesn't apply to lecture courses (e.g Field Study, Wellness for Life, FITNESS: PHS ADA/EX, etc) or online courses. This fee is used to purchase and maintain equipment needed to teach these courses and is charged by the Registrar's office. It will show up as a "Mat Fee" in Student Billing Services. This is short for Course Materials Fee.
Course Material Fees Refunds
When you sign up a for Phys Ed course that has a CMF fee, the campus system will automatically charge the fee to your account. If you drop the course before the end of the fifth week of instruction the fee will be refunded to you by Student Billing Services.
