Resource Planning coordinates the review and approval process for Broad-based Fees. Financial Management coordinates the review and approval process for Departmental Event Fees, Educational Program Fees, Service Center Fees, and University Fees.
Broad-based fees are generally charged to all enrolled students to finance discrete activities that benefit the student body excluding those activities that are part of the core instructional program.
As part of the Annual Resource Planning process, we gather requests from units and collaborate with Student Life to set Broad-based Fee rates. These fees are charged to students to provide specific services and ensure that the university is accommodating their needs. The fee recommendations are submitted to SUNY for approval before implementation.

Departmental Event Fees, Educational Program Fees, Service Center Fees, and University Fees provide revenue to fund self-supporting programs.
