Each semester all students enrolled in courses for credit or audit pay a Student Government Fee. Currently, the fee is $4 a semester per student and last had a $1.00 increase in 2007.
This fee was adopted by the Student Government Association to provide funds for a variety of student activities.
The purpose of the Student Government Fee is to advance Pellissippi State’s educational mission by funding coeducational services, activities, programs, and facilities that contribute to the holistic development of students. The intentional use of this fee provides opportunities for personal growth, a sense of belonging, and connection to the college and others while promoting healthy lifestyles, civic engagement, and personal satisfaction.
The Student Government fee helps provide:
The Fee Board is comprised of a minimum of five students who have been nominated by their peers from our 55 clubs and organizations. The Fee Board Chair is the Treasurer of the Student Government Association who is advised by the SGA advisor.
Members serve one semester and then are replaced into a pool for re-selection for the next term. Members are required to attend one training before they are allowed to serve as Fee Board members.
The budget for Fee Board allocations is annually determined as 15 percent of the projected student activity revenue for all semesters in that academic year. The committee administers the allocation process through established funding policies and procedures. This ensures neutrality in all funding decisions.

All meetings are open to the public and are held on the first Tuesday of each month during the academic year. Meetings are held virtually and all information is posted regularly on the SGA blog.
