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.
