Student Service Fees

The Student Service Fee Advisory Committee meets annually, usually in December or January, to consider budget requests and make recommendations regarding the allocation student fees. Committee proceedings are available via livestream

Departments that receive Student Service Fees provide a written request for funds then make a presentation to the committee on the department's role and goals for the next fiscal year. Allocation recommendations and the proposed amount of fees for the following year must be approved by the vice president for student life, the chancellor and the governing board of the institution.

The committee was created to meet the requirements of Texas Education Code 54.503

The primary areas that receive allocations include student life departments that do not receive state funding or funds from designated tuition. The chart below illustrates service fee revenues for the past five years.
