Fiscal Operations provides centralized support and resources to all areas in the Division of Student Affairs (DSA) for strategic planning and initiatives, budget development, revenue and expenditures tracking and reporting, procedures creation, and administration of the Student Fee Committees.

The DSA follows the University Strategic Plan and annual budget and planning instructions set forth by the Division of Business and Financial Affairs. Please reference the links below to learn more about the University’s financial resources.

CSUCI 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. The DSA manages various fee committees by providing student leadership development, training, and support to the committees, which provide oversight of each of the campus mandatory fees. For additional information please visit the Student Fee Committees webpages.

Annual Budget Planning

The DSA values transparency and direct communication dynamics. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Vice President has made it a priority to meet routinely with staff. Meetings have occurred as a whole, as extended leadership teams, in area/departmental groups, as well as one-on-one; all with the intended purpose of information sharing and offering staff the opportunity to dialogue about actual and anticipated resource restraints facing the campus.

Please reference the following link for historical information on meetings where budget and/or resource issues have been discussed. 

As reinforced in all DSA resource discussions, the Vice President has stressed the reliance and commitment to the DSA Budget Principles:

  • Reallocate and prioritize existing DSA resources in support of Strategic Initiatives;
  • Use of data to inform short and long-term planning (descriptive, inform interventions, evaluate programs);
  • Enhance revenue generation; and
  • Remain flexible in an effort to preserve momentum towards strategic initiatives.
