A request to establish or alter a fee must first be approved by the college dean or department administrator then forwarded to the division head for review. The submission deadline is January 31. Any forms received after the deadline may be returned by the division head. If the request meets the established criteria outlined in policy 5-80-020 it may be included in the proposal forwarded from the division head to the budget & finance committee. If recommended by the budget & finance committee, the request will be forwarded to the president.
Tuition, mandatory fees, and housing and dining room and board rates are subject to board of trustee approval. Action is generally taken during the June meeting.
Fees approved by the president and/or the board of trustees will be forwarded as part of the university’s budget submission to the office of financial management (OFM) and the legislature. Fees approved by the legislature will be implemented in accordance with the budget bill. Publication of a new fee or adjustment to established fees will be completed in accordance with CWUP 2-20-050.
Fee request submissions as a result of state or federal mandate may be processed as an exception outside of the January 31 timeline and routed as outlined above for approval.
