Policy governing course fees:
Faculty who want to add or change a fee to a course must obtain the approval of the appropriate department chair and the Provost & Vice President of Academic Affairs.
Any faculty member requesting a course fee or any increase to an existing course fee must submit a completed Course Fee Approval Form to the Provost’s office no later than:
- January 30th for fall and summer courses
- September 1st for spring and wintersession courses.
Typically, course fees are only applied to classes that have significant costs related to travel, special projects, etc. Fees below $100 are discouraged.
Faculty are encouraged to work with their department chairs as they develop their departmental budgets and to consider alternatives to course fees such as grants and programmatic/co-curricular support from the Offices of Academic Achievement, General Education, Intercultural Affairs, and Student Activities.
