UAlbany Transit Fee- GSEU negotiated rate

In 1996, an agreement was established between the Graduate Student Employee Union and the University at Albany wherein GSEU members are to pay a separate, negotiated fee, in addition to the vehicle registration fee of $30.00. GSEU members, unlike undergraduate and non-GSEU graduate students, do not pay the per semester transportation fee in their tuition bill. Instead, the Office of Parking and Mass Transit Services is required to bill GSEU members the negotiated transportation fee which includes access to transit services. Several weeks after the start of each semester, the Office of Parking and Mass Transit Services is officially notified, by Human Resources, of students who are members of the graduate Student Employee Union (GSEU). If we are notified by Human Resources that you are a GSEU member, your fee will be billed based on the following:

Time Fee Decal Total with Tax
Academic Year (9/1-8/31) $32.40 $30.00 $62.40
Fall Semester (9/1-12/31) $27.00 $30.00 $57.00
