Other elective fees and special charges are defined as those fees and charges that are paid selectively by students. These fees and charges may include, but are not limited to:
Institutional presidents are authorized to establish and adjust these fees, as appropriate. Prior to implementation of such fees, institutions shall be required to report to the Chancellor any establishments and adjustments made thereto under procedures established by the USG chief fiscal officer (BoR Minutes, January 2010).
The University currently collects thirteen special course fees from its students. Only students enrolled in the course or program are assessed the fee. The amount charged for each Special Course Fees is available at
http://adminservices.clayton.edu/registrar/fees.htm. The University has created a Academic Affairs Course Fee Committee (AACFC)
comprised of faculty, administrators and students. To review Special course fee requests.
After the AACFC completes their review, their recommendations of approval, denial or modification the fee amount should be forwarded to the President and the Budget office for final review and Presidential approval. The recommendation should include the course name, number, title, purpose of the fee, when the fee was going to be required and collected, the fee amount, projected revenue, and how the revenue would be used.
Approved requests will generally take effect the following Fall Semester unless business needs require an earlier implementation.
