The administrative fee is an internal fee that allocates shared administrative support costs accumulated in the state general fund to self-support units benefiting from these services. Administrative support costs are allocated using a methodology that approximates the units’ proportional benefit. Exceptions to this policy include:
1) Fees where the institution is bound by agreement to collect a fee and use the funds for a specific purpose;
2) Funds that are restricted by an outside funding agency;
3) Funds that have already been assessed an overhead fee;
4) Internal Service funds that pass through expenses;
5) Non-university funds.
