Blanket Tax

The Blanket Tax is the fee that every undergraduate student pays (currently set at $85) to organizations that serve the interest of the Rice community.

Clubs receiving Blanket Tax include the Student Association, KTRU, the Rice Thresher, the Campanile, the Rice Program Council (RPC), the Rice Student Volunteer Program (RSVP), Honor Council, and the University Court.

A blanket tax can only be created, amended, or repealed by a referendum of the student body. The Student Association Treasurer and the Blanket Tax Committee conduct a yearly review of the finances of clubs receiving blanket taxes; all Blanket Tax organizations are required to comply with this process.
