Student Learning Fees

Student Learning Fees

Executive Order 1049 (PDF) established a Category II Materials Services and Facilities fee, the Student Learning Fee (SLF), to enhance the student learning experience at CSU, Chico. Per Executive Order 1102 (PDF), as well as Executive Order 1049, Category II fees are campus-based mandatory fees required for enrollment. The fee revenue covers various services, facilities or materials made available to all students as a part of the overall university experience. 

A portion of these fees is allocated to financial aid with the remainder provided to Academic Affairs colleges, Student Affairs, and the Campus Fee Advisory Committee (CFAC) to enhance student learning. CFAC awards student learning opportunities to non-college Academic Affairs units and interdisciplinary projects (cross-divisional or cross-college). Each unit that receives an allocation is required to form a SLF committee that consists of students, faculty and staff representatives of that unit and maintains a student majority. This committee, working with the unit head, is given responsibility for determining how to spend their SLF allocation, within SLF expenditure guidelines. CFAC staff support reviews recommended expenditures in conjunction with the campus budget office to ensure compliance with SLF expenditure guidelines.
