PREAMBLE: This section appeared in the 1979 Handbook and its present form in July, 1987. For further information, contact the Office of the Vice President for Finance and Administration (208-885-6174).

 

 

A. GENERAL. With the exceptions noted in B, the regents' must approve the establishment or change of any fee that is to be charged to students.

 

B. EXCEPTIONS. The requirement of approval by the board does not apply to fees that are established by the legislature or by the terms of a contractual agreement with another state or program. The board has authorized the president to set the following kinds of fees:

B-1. Fees required for specific courses or activities and assessments that are not required of all students enrolled at UI. This category includes penalty assessments, such as library fines, parking fines, and laboratory breakage fees, and fees for video outreach courses and courses offered for such purposes as remedial education that do not count toward meeting degree requirements.

 

B-2. Student health insurance premiums, charges for room and board in UI dormitories, and rental rates for family housing. Any change in these charges must be approved by the president at least three months before the beginning of the semester in which it is to become effective.

B-3. Activity fees, such as those for intercollegiate athletics, health services, student union operations, student government, and recreation. The president must consult with ASUI and a public hearing must be held before an activity fee is established or changed. The president's approval must be not later than April 1 of the year before the academic year in which the change is to become effective.

C. See the catalog for information on student fees and other charges that are in effect and the provisions for payment and refund of fees.
