The allocated revenue for the student activity fee for University of Iowa students will total $1,708,500 for the new academic year, up from $1,627,865 in 2010-11. UIstudents will pay $4 more per year with the increase, a hike of roughly 3 percent. Additionally, the student services fee increased from $1,743, 906 to $1,810,500.
