3,501: Special Course and Other Student Fees

Revised: July 2012

NSHE Title 4, Chapter 17, Section 17 contains Board policy regarding the assessment and use of student fees.  Except for student health service and health insurance fees, all additions, revisions and deletions to special fees including, but not limited to student, special course, differential program and special use fees, and residence hall, apartment rentals, and food service rates are presented to the Board for approval during the last Board meeting of each calendar year. Exceptions to this policy require approval of the Chancellor.

Prior to going to the Board of Regents, all student fees must first be approved by the Student Fee Review Committee.  Proposals for new or increased student fees are due to the Provost's office by the end of August each year.  Such proposals should include justification for the new or increased fee and a revenue and expense budget.  The Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs and Planning, Budget & Analysis staff review these documents prior to submitting them for committee review.  The committee meets early in the fall and spring semesters to review student fee and special course fee requests.  If the requested fee is approved by the committee, it is then submitted to the Board of Regents for approval.
