Student Learning Fees

Student Learning Fees (SLF)

The Student Learning Fee (SLF) is a Category II (Materials Services and Facilities) fee that is used to enhance the student learning experience at Chico State. Per Executive Order 1102, 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 (Chancellor's Office Executive Order Library(opens in new window)).

Annually, a portion of the Student Learning Fees are allocated off the top:

  • 33% for Student Financial Aid;
  • $200,000 to the colleges to supplement their Consolidated Course Fees;
  • $100,000 to the Student Learning Center to support Supplemental Instruction, a proven practice in improving student learning outcomes. This amount is evaluated annually.

The remaining SLF funding is allocated by the academic colleges, Student Affairs, and the Campus Fee Advisory Committee (CFAC) to enhance student learning.
