Campus Fee Approval Procedures

Campus Fees are defined as charges in addition to the regular instruction fee (tuition), special course fees and segregated fees. These fees are assessed to students if the campus fee has been approved by the Department Dean/Director, the Bursar/Controller, and the Assistant Chancellor for Business and Finance.

This fee is requested to reimburse a charge that has been incurred. Fees should be based on the actual cost.

Specific detail in the request for the fee should include why the fee needs to be charged and a calculation of how the fee was determined.


Examples of campus fees include athletic team travel, pre-season camps, clothing, athletic performance fee, textbook fines, equipment loss fees, etc.


The Department requesting the fee needs to maintain documentation supporting of the amount of the fee.  Invoices or other supporting documents are acceptable.
