Campus Procedures to Establish or Adjust a Student Fee

This Memorandum describes how to create or adjust fees charged to students at Cal State Fullerton. Forms that must be completed to request the establishment of or adjustment in an existing fee are available in the Vice President for Student Affairs Office.

Consultation with the Vice President for Student Affairs Office prior to submitting a request for fee action is required and will facilitate the fee proposal process in a timely manner. The fee proposal requires numerous steps and involves a number of offices across campus. You are strongly encouraged to plan for a minimum of two months to complete the process. If approved, the fee effective date will depend on the time required to implement the new fee/fee increase.

In order to facilitate PeopleSoft implementation of the new fee/fee increase, contact Steven Yim in Student Financial Services at This step is required and will involve consultation with Financial Aid. In most cases, set aside money is required to redistribute to financial aid applicants.
