It’s the time of year to review existing (non-academic or non-course) fees and/or request new fees. Please browse your department’s existing fees at http://osufees.bus.oregonstate.edu/. Changes to existing fees or new fees would be effective July 1, 2012.
Any changes to existing fees or requests for new fees must go through an approval process . The deadline for Internal and External fee proposals is Friday March 16, 2012. Proposals submitted by the deadline will be reviewed by the University Internal/External Fee Committee (I/EFC). Before receiving final approval, external fees must be made available for public review in the Valley Library for 30 days before a mandatory public hearing is held in June.
For any revisions or additions, a justification will be needed to explain how the fee was calculated. A worksheet with the calculation could also be submitted. Samples of Recharge Fee Calculation Forms can be found within the exhibit section of the FIS Manual. http://oregonstate.edu/fa/manuals/fis/003.
All existing fees must be reviewed annually, even if there are no changes. Please confirm by March 1 that you have reviewed all existing fees, If you only wish to change the index or some wording within the description, please let me know by the March 1 date.
