New student seal to clarify fees

Georgia Regents University now has a Student Fee Seal to identify activities, services, facilities, or events that are funded by mandatory student fees.

According to Dr. Mark Poisel, Vice President for Student Affairs at GRU, this seal is an effort to ensure the GRU Community is aware of how fees are being used to help students in their educational experience at the university.

Therefore, all student organizations, clubs, groups, or departments are required to display this seal on posters, fliers, and other promotional materials if they receive funds from student fees to support their events or programs.

Examples of fee-supported departments or divisions for which the seal applies include Student Health Services, Student Government Association, Wellness Center/Intramurals, Office of Student Life and Engagement/ PawPrints, Athletics, Transportation, and Information Technology Services.

For more information regarding the Student Fee Seal, call the Division of Student Affairs at 706-737-1411.
