The CSU Board of Trustees has delegated authority to campus presidents for the oversight and management of Category V fees, of which extended education fees is one such classification. CSU will continue to ask campuses to report on Category V extended education fees and available balances for total extended education fee revenue collections. CSU review of campus financial and student reporting systems resulted in a determination that the best way to implement collection of a complete inventory of campus extended education fees and fee rates is through a separate submission of individual campus reports as recorded in campus student systems annually. These separate reports will be filed with the System Budget Office and held for review for two years.
