Miscellaneous, Course & Program Fees

Chancellors are delegated authority for miscellaneous student fees, services charges, fines, course fees and deposits. Miscellaneous Fees are generally user fees, service charges, or fines assessed to cover the cost of services and materials, to encourage compliance with administrative rules or to repair or replace damaged equipment.
