When adjusting an existing category II campus-based mandatory fee or establishing a new campus mandatory fee, there are processes that campuses should go through to ensure appropriate and meaningful consultation from all members of the campus community, with special consideration to input from students.
Common campus-based mandatory fees include: Associated Student Body Fee (ASI); University Union Fee; Health Services Fee; Health Facilities Fee; Instructionally Related Activities Fee; Materials, Services and Facilities Fee; ID Card Fee (when mandatory); Orientation Fee (when mandatory) and others.
The Associated Student Body Fee (Education Code § 89300) and the University Union fee (Education Code § 89304) require a favorable result of a referendum in order to be established. Once established, the ASI fee continues to require a favorable referendum vote in order to be adjusted. The University Union fee is no longer restricted to a referendum, and other types of alternative consultation can be considered when appropriate.
Appropriate and Meaningful Consultation: Referendum or alternative consultation - from EO 1102 Section III.
