A request to establish or alter an academic fee must first be approved by the college dean or division administrator and then forwarded to the Provost for review. If the request meets the established criteria it may be included in the proposal forwarded from the Provost to the Budget & Finance Committee. If approved by the Budget & Finance Committee, the request will be forwarded to the President for placement on the agenda for action by the Board of Trustees. Academic fee requests will be submitted as an agenda item for discussion during the Board of Trustees meeting in May, with action taken during the June meeting. Forms must be received by the Office of the Provost by January 31 to be included in the list for submission. Forms received after the deadline will be returned. Changes approved by the Board of Trustees in June will be forwarded as part of the university’s budget submission to the Office of Financial Management (OFM) and the Legislature. Publication of a new fee or adjustment to established fees will be completed in accordance with CWUP 2-20-050.
