Mandatory Fee Committee

Currently, the Mandatory Fee Committee comprises 7 students, 2 faculty, and 2 staff.

The Mandatory Fee Committee convenes in the fall to hear presentations of the state of each fee and any proposed changes to the fees. The committee votes to approve the fee structure each year.

The introduction of new fees, the repurposing of fees, or the increase of any fee by 20% or more must be voted on by a student body referendum.
