Important Notes

  • Executive Order 1054 supercedes Executive Order 1034. All administrative guidelines, procedures and forms related to EO 1034 no longer apply.
  • Fee requests must be submitted two months prior to the start of registration for the targeted term.

    Summer January 1st

  • A Statement of Revenue and Expenditures is mandatory for all Category II, III, IV, and V fee requests.
  • Supplemental materials may be appended to the fee request for presentation to the Student Fee Advisory Committee, AVP Financial Management and President. Examples include a schedule comparing the requested fee to the same fee at comparable institutions, vendor quotes, or a history of the fee amount showing increases (decreases) by year. These are not required.

Requests for Fee Increases

  • Before you request a fee increase, you should exhaust (i.e. spend) any excess of actual revenue collected over actual expenses and commitments.
  • If excess revenue over expenses exists, you should demonstrate and support by appropriate vouchers that the anticipated increase in cost exceeds the excess of revenue over expenses.
  • If the requested increase in fee level/range is due to anticipated decline in the number of users without a corresponding decrease in the cost, you need to support this argument with appropriate documents / vouchers.
