Allocable v. Non-Allocable
There are two categories of Segregated University Fees: allocable and non-allocable.
Allocable SUF are those SUF that provide substantial support for campus student activities and services and that are allocated by students, in consultation with the chancellor and subject to the final confirmation of the Board of Regents. The university group organized at UW Oshkosh for the purpose of engaging in the allocation process is the Allocations Committee. The Allocations Committee funds recognized student organizations, intramurals and departmental clubs.
Non-allocable SUF are those SUF that are used to support long-term commitments for fixed financial obligations, ongoing operating costs of university owned or controlled buildings and similar commitments for student unions, health centers, child care centers and recreational sports centers. Chancellors, following consultation with students, are responsible for the development of budgets and expenditures of non-allocable SUF. The university group organized at UW Oshkosh for the purpose of providing a proposed SUF funding level to the Chancellor is the Segregated Fee Committee.
The following units are funded by UW Oshkosh SUF: Reeve Union, Oshkosh Sports Complex, Student Health Center, Children’s Learning & Care Center, Intercollegiate Athletics, Student Recreation & Wellness Center and the Municipal Fee. The Allocations Committee also presents their overall budget to the Segregated Fee Committee.
