Within six months of the date the Legislature clarifies its intent regarding California Education Code, Section 89708, the Chancellor's Office should develop and issue final guidance to campuses regarding supplanting, including identifying appropriate oversight mechanisms for ensuring campuses' compliance with this law.


The Legislature's bill to clarify its intent regarding California Education Code, Section 89708, was signed into law on September 3, 2015. The Chancellor's office is currently in the process of developing the final guidance for the campuses. We anticipate issuing the guidance by March 2016, subject to approval by Chancellor's Office administrators and consultation with stakeholders.

Recommendation To: University, California State

To effectively monitor and ensure that the campuses set self-supported fees in accordance with state law and Executive Order 1054, the Chancellor's Office should immediately take the following action: require campus chief financial officers to develop, and presidents to consider, the statement of revenues and expenditures described in Executive Order 1054 before making a determination on self-supported extended education program fees.


The Chancellor's Office has finalized and issued Executive Order 1102, California State University Student Fee Policy. The policy requires the campus president to consult with the dean of extended education, including consideration of revenue and expenditure plans developed by the dean or designee and in consultation with the campus chief financial officer, prior to making determinations on extended education fees.
