Student Fee Advisory Committee (SFAC)

The Student Fee Advisory Committee is a shared governance body comprised of students, faculty and administrators that considers proposals for the establishment and/or adjustment of Category II (campus mandatory fees) and Category III (miscellaneous course fees) and makes recommendations to the president.  Modeling our deep commitment to the principles of shared governance, the SFAC at SF State also considers proposals for Category IV fees. For your reference fee categories are fully defined in section II of the Student Fee Policy. California State University Executive Order 1102, the CSU Student Fee Policy, governs and guides the actions of the Student Fee Advisory Committee. 

The committee is Chaired by the Vice President for Student Affairs & Enrollment Management, co-chaired by the President of Associated Students, and the majority of voting members of the SFAC are students. Please see the full committee roster.

SF State's SFAC has developed procedures to implement the CSU student fee policy. Click on the link below to download these procedures in a PDF document.
