Special Course Fees
“Special Course Fees” are additional charges for specific classes or courses that have demonstrably higher costs of delivering instruction overall because of the need for or use of special equipment, supplies, technology, key personnel.
Course Fees are not subject to the Revenue Administrative Service Charge but are subject to the Expenditure Based Administrative Service charge of 1% which is assessed on all expenditures.
University Fees Committee
The University Fees Committee was created in 1989 in response to Arizona Board of Regents action transferring the authority for approval to the Provost for special class fees and deposits of $50 and less. Effective July 1, 2018 the Board now retains the authority to approve all fees regardless of the amount.
The University Fees Committee is comprised of two undergraduate students, two graduate students, three faculty and the Bursar. The committee meets as needed to review requests for special class fees, deposits and academically related non-course fees and provides a recommendation for appropriate action. Once a preliminary review is done by the committee, all requests will be forwarded to ABOR for final approval on their Spring tuition and fees setting meeting.
