CHAPTER VI

3. TUITION AND FEES

Tuition, student fees, and room and board rates shall be established by each Component subject to approval by the Vice Chancellor and Chief Financial Officer, in consultation with the Chancellor, and the Board.

3.1 Student Services Fees.

Each Component is authorized to charge and collect from students registered at the Component fees to cover the cost of student services which the Chancellor and Board deem necessary or desirable in carrying out the educational functions of the Component based on Education Code, Section 54.503.

3.2 Additional Mandatory Fees.

Each Component is authorized to charge and collect from students registered at the Component other such mandatory fees as statutorily authorized.

Additional voluntary student services fees may be established with the approval of the President of the respective Component.

3.4 Installment Payments.

Each Component shall provide optional installment payment plans for tuition and required fees in accordance with Education Code, Section 54.007. A Component may also provide an installment method of paying campus housing, food service, or room and board contracts. The Board may authorize assessment and collection of incidental fees for students utilizing this method of payment and/or late fees for students who are delinquent in their payment, provided such fees reasonably reflect the cost to the Component of handling these payments.

3.5 Reinstatement Fee.

A student seeking reinstatement to a Component within the same semester after having withdrawn or been withdrawn shall pay a $50.00 reinstatement fee, in addition to late payment fees. Students on an installment plan must also pay all past due balances at the time of reinstatement.

3.51    Application of Component and all federal or state grants and loans provided to a student must be applied toward the full amounts due to the Component for the payment of tuition, fees, and other charges before installment payments are scheduled. This provision does not apply to Guaranteed Student Loan Program (GSLP), Parent Loans for Undergraduate Students (PLUS), Student Loan Supplement (SLS), or other similar funds, which shall be disbursed by the Component directly to the student in accordance with federal law and regulations.

3.52     Campus Housing, Food Service, Room and Board. Each Component is authorized to charge fees to students utilizing an installment method of paying campus housing, food service, or room and board contracts, with such fees not to exceed the fees charged under Subparagraph 3.4 of this Chapter to students paying tuition and required fees in installments.
