To ensure that it sets self-supported fees for extended education in accordance with state law and Executive Order 1054, CSU Long Beach should immediately take the following action: revise its student fee policy to include its revised methodology for calculating the direct allocation component of the fee and its procedure for applying the established program reinvestment allocation percentage to the individual fees it sets for each self-supported extended education program.
The statement of revenue and expenditures now follow the revised methodology as described in the response to Recommendation #9 and demonstrated for the Engineering Degree Completion program for Electrical Engineering in Recommendation #8. The student fee policy was revised and submitted previously in response to recommendation #14.

The College of Continuing and Professional Education is reviewing the methodology with the CSU Long Beach management to ensure all appropriate direct and indirect costs are covered.
The methodology for calculating the direct allocation component and establishing a reinvestment allocation percentage are under development. The models developed to date are under consideration to ensure accuracy and reasonableness before selection and implementation.
