What does the Incidental Fee fund?

According to State regulations, the Incidental Fee pays for the student activities provided by three main areas:  Intercollegiate Athletics, Educational Activities, and the Student Union.  For Western Oregon University, the Incidental Fee pays partially or fully for 14 Fee-Funded areas like Athletics, Abby’s House, Campus Recreation and ASWOU, including professional staff and student worker wages and benefits. Fee paying students have access to many services, activities and programs. Students do not pay to attend sporting events or most theatre productions.
