Health Center (Facility) Program Overview

The development and operation of health center facilities, on CSU campuses, has been authorized as a self-supporting program. Education Code statutory authority permits the trustees to establish a mandatory facility fee for the construction and maintenance of health center facilities. The statutes in the California State University Bond Act of 1947 permit the Board of Trustees to use an established mandatory health center facility fee as a revenue source to repay bonds issued by the Trustees in order to fund the construction of health center facilities on CSU campuses.

At one time, the Trustees issued bonds to construct various health center facilities on campuses. In the early 1990's all bonds were repaid from reserves of the health center facility program. As of July 1, 1995, the program was decentralized to better align responsibility and authority for operations of these campus facilities. Each campus now collects the health center facility fee and funds the facility needs from these revenues.

Facility fee levels for the health centers are set pursuant to the Board of Trustees fee policy and Executive Order 661. There is no debt outstanding for any health center facilities in the CSU as of January 1, 1999.
