Student Learning Fees

Awardee Guidelines for 2018-19

Please follow the guidelines below during the implementation of your project and spending of the Student Learning Fees you have received:

Project Funding

The Student Learning Fee award is specific to a project. Combining unspent funds with another award is not allowed. Awards must be spent (not encumbered) by June 30. Please adhere to the year-end fiscal schedule in order to meet all University financial deadlines.

Chartfield String

All transactions must use the Student Learning Fee fund T8508 and must include the appropriate program code. Awardees will be contacted for DeptIDs. Awards for interdisciplinary proposals will be managed by the primary proposers' department and will require that department's DeptID. A copy of the Student Learning Fee awards and chartfields can be found on our Awards page.

Purchases

Review your proposal very carefully. Funds can be spent only on items included in the description of items to be purchased. For example, if the description states “computer”, items such as data line installation, software or workstation do not qualify as a “computer” expense. To maximize student learning, please work with your college Administrative Analyst/Specialist as soon as possible on the steps necessary to expend the funds on the item(s) listed in your proposal. If you are purchasing items which qualify as Electronic and Information Technology (E&IT) you are subject to the Information Technology Procurement Review (ITPR) process. This approval is contingent on satisfactory completion of that process. For assistance, please email itpr@csuchico.edu.

Student Payroll

If the award is for student assistant wages, payroll and payroll corrections must be posted by June 30. This means the last payroll posted to T8508 is May payroll and all payroll corrections (PT-11’s) must be submitted by May 31. Contact the campus Budget Office, ext. 5938, to establish a new CMS position number or if you have questions about the timing of any corrections.

Over-expenditure of Award

Charges in excess of the award will be moved to the department/college general fund accounts.

Unspent Awards

Any award funding remaining at June 30 will be returned for inclusion in the next round of allocations.

Award Assessments

Recipients of SLF awards are required to submit an assessment prior to the deadline found in the current timeline(opens in new window)

Due to a revision of the SLF process, assessments are no longer submitted via the web application. An assessment template that has been developed by the Campus Fee Advisory Committee (CFAC) will be forwarded to recipients in early spring of 2019.

Once complete, submit the assessment directly to your unit head’s office (college office or to CFAC at slf@csuchico.edu(opens in new window)), depending on your funding source.

It is highly recommended that you submit your assessment narrative as soon as your assessment plan allows. All assessments are due to the unit head’s office or CFAC by 5/28/19.

If you wish to review your original proposal, please visit the SLF web application(opens in new window)

Contact slf@csuchico.edu if you have any questions about this requirement.
