CI student fees are governed by Executive Order (EO) 1102, The California State University Fee Policy. EO 1102 establishes authority, responsibility and accountability with regard to CSU student tuition and fees. EO 1102 defines six fee categories and requires universities to establish a Student Fee Advisory Committee, with student majority membership, for appropriate and meaningful consultation on fees.
In addition to the Student Fee Advisory Committee, CI has five fee oversight committees that provide oversight to each of the campus mandatory fees. The purpose of these committees is to review financials, hear budget proposals, and provide recommendations to the respective Vice President regarding annual budgets, adjustments of the respective fees, and programs/services.
This website will acquaint you with the six student fee committees, CI’s Student Fee Process, the CSU Fee Policy, as well as other information pertaining to student fees.
