How are my student fees chosen?

Each year, the Student Fee Allocation Committee (SFAC) meets to recommend changes to the student fee structure for the following year. The SFAC is a recommending body, consisting of the DSUSA Executive Council and two students at large; appointed by the DSUSA President. They review approximately half of the fees each year, so that every fee comes to report on the usage of their fee every other year.

After the initial hearings and reports, the SFAC then passes their recommendation to the University Executive Staff and then to the University Board of Trustees. Eventually, every school’s student fee structure is sent to the Governor for final approval. Student fees typically rise a small amount each year, in order to keep up with the needs of the student body and to keep them proportionate to tuition costs.

For the current 2015-2016 school year, student fees are broken down as follows:
