Fees and Debts Owed to
Should a student
or former student fail to pay a fee or a debt owed to the institution, the
institution may "withhold permission to register, to use facilities for which a
fee is authorized to be charged, to receive services, materials, food or
merchandise or any combination of the above from any person owing a debt" until
the debt is paid (see Title 5, California Code of Regulations, Sections 42380
who register for courses offered by the university are obligated for the
payment of fees associated with registration for those courses. Failure to
cancel registration in any course for an academic term prior to the first day
of the academic term gives rise to an obligation to pay student fees including
any tuition for the reservation of space in the course.
The institution may
withhold permission to register or to receive official transcripts of grades or
other services offered by the institution from anyone owing fees or another
debt to the institution. The institution may also report the debt to a credit
bureau, offset the amount due against any future state tax refunds due the
student, refer the debt to an outside collection agency and/or charge the
student actual and reasonable collection costs, including reasonable attorney
fees if litigation is necessary, in collecting any amount not paid when due.
If a person believes
he or she does not owe all or part of an asserted unpaid obligation, that
person may contact the campus business office. The business office, or another
office on campus to which the business office may refer the person, will review
all pertinent information provided by the person and available to the campus
and will advise the person of its conclusions.
Registration or Withdrawal from the Institution
Students who find
it necessary to cancel their registration or to withdraw from all classes after
enrolling for any academic term are required to follow the university's
official withdrawal procedures. Failure to follow formal university procedures
may result in an obligation to pay fees as well as the assignment of failing
grades in all courses and the need to apply for readmission before being
permitted to enroll in another academic term. Information on canceling
registration and withdrawal procedures is available from the University
Registrar's Office 1000 E. Victoria St. Carson, CA 90747. (310) 243-3648.
receive financial aid funds must consult with the Financial Aid office prior to
withdrawing from the university regarding any required return or repayment of
grant or loan assistance received for that academic term or payment period. If
a recipient of student financial aid funds withdraws from the institution
during an academic term or a payment period, the amount of grant or loan
assistance received may be subject to return and/or repayment provisions.
Average Support Cost
per Full-Time Equivalent Student and Sources of Funds
The total support
cost per full-time equivalent student (FTES) includes the expenditures for
current operations, including payments made to students in the form of
financial aid, and all fully reimbursed programs contained in state
appropriations. The average support cost is determined by dividing the total
cost by the number of FTES. The total CSU 2010-11 budget amounts were
$2,617,435,000 from state General Fund appropriations (not including capital
outlay funding), $1,244,603,000 from net basic tuition fee revenue, and
$320,211,000 from other fee revenues and reimbursements for a total of
$4,182,249,000. The number of projected 2010-11 FTES is 339,873 resident and
14,509 non-resident students. FTES is determined by dividing the total academic
student load by 15 units per term (the figure used here to define a full-time
student's academic load).
The 2010-11 average
support cost per FTES based on General Fund appropriation and net basic tuition
fee revenue only is $11,213 and when including all sources as indicated below
is $12,117. Of this amount, the average net basic tuition fee revenue and other
income & reimbursements per FTES is $4,416, which includes all fee revenue
in the CSU Operating Fund (e.g. tuition fees, application fees, other
miscellaneous fees, and reimbursements).

The average CSU

other mandatory fees required to apply to, enroll in, or attend the university
is $5,285. However, the costs paid by individual students will vary depending

Procedure for the
Establishment or Abolishment of Campus-Based Mandatory Fees
The law governing
provides that fees defined as mandatory, such as a student body association fee
and a student body center fee, may be established. A student body association
fee must be established upon a favorable vote of two-thirds of the students
voting in an election held for this purpose (Education Code, Section 89300). A
student body center fee may be established only after a fee referendum is held
which approves by a two-thirds favorable vote the establishment of the fee
(Education Code, Section 89304). The student body fee was established at CSU
Dominguez Hills by student referendum on December 17, 1965. The campus President may adjust the student
body association fee only after the fee adjustment has been approved by a
majority of students voting in a referendum established for that purpose
(Education Code, Section 89300). The required fee shall be subject to
referendum at any time upon the presentation of a petition to the campus President
containing the signatures of 10 percent of the regularly enrolled students at
the University. Once bonds are issued, authority to set and adjust student body
center fees is governed by provisions of the State University Revenue Bond Act
of 1947, including, but not limited to, Education Code sections 90012, 90027,
and 90068. Student body association fees support a variety of cultural and
recreational programs, childcare centers, and special student support programs.
The process to
establish and adjust other campus-based mandatory fees requires consideration
by the campus fee advisory committee and a student referendum. The campus
President may use alternate consultation mechanisms if he/she determines that a
referendum is not the best mechanism to achieve appropriate and meaningful
consultation. Results of the referendum and the fee committee review are
advisory to the campus President. The President may adjust campus-based
mandatory fees but must request the Chancellor to establish a new mandatory fee
The President shall provide to the fee advisory committee a report of all campus-based
mandatory fees. The campus shall report annually to the Chancellor a complete
inventory of all campus-based mandatory fees.
