Recommendation #20 To: San Jose, California State University
To ensure that it sets self-supported fees for extended education in accordance with state law and Executive Order 1054, San Josť State should immediately take the following action: prepare statements of revenues and expenditures for the programs we discuss in this report, and, if necessary, increase or decrease those programs' future fees to appropriate levels.
1-Year Agency Response
SJSU has completed the preparation of the statements of revenues and expenditures as required in the audit finding. We have emailed to the State Auditor the 2 pro-forma financial statements as requested, along with a cover letter from the Dean of IES detailing the fee setting approach for these programs undertaken by IES in their budget planning this past Summer
For the Medical Product Development Management program, we completed the revenues and expenses statements for the seven years from 2008 to 2015. We calculated the fee for this program and made adjustments to bring it to appropriate level based on the considerations detailed by the Dean of International and Extended Studies.
For the Global Studies Online program, we completed the revenues and expenses statements for the four years from 2010 to 2014. This program has only one remaining student finishing up in the Fall of 2014 and will be discontinued after that.
