Request for a Task Force to Study California State University (CSU) Student Fee Policy
AS-2774-06/AA (Rev) - November 9, 2006
RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State University (CSU) requests that the Chancellor’s Office, in conjunction with the Academic Senate CSU and the California State Student Association (CSSA), undertake a study of CSU Student Fee Policy to determine what changes in this policy would result in a better allocation of state resources to facilitate graduation and promote student success.
RATIONALE: Current CSU Student Fee Policy results in some students making course load decisions based more upon economic incentives rather than educational considerations, such as enrolling in more courses than they intend to complete or registering through the Extended University rather than the main campus. These choices, based on economic incentives, may result in longer average times to degree completion and lower academic achievement. Fee policies should align economic incentives with educational outcomes.
Approved – January 18-19, 2007
